Corona Clipper, acquired 15 years ago by Spanish hand-tool manufacturer Corporación Patricio Echeverría, is still making tools – including many it pitches to landscape contractors – in Corona, California, as it has since the 1920s.
The company points especially to its “Sharp Shooter” shovel as a tool that fits numerous landscape tasks, whether installation or maintenance.
Corona says the Sharp Shooter was designed to break through “the hardest of soils,” with a heavy-gauge steel blade angled for cutting or shaping holes, spading, planting and prying. The blade of the shovel is 5.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches tall.
The Sharp Shooter’s handle, meanwhile, is also steel, powder coated and one model, the 90100 (shown here), features a solid steel end cap for tamping. Handles are available in both 78-inch and 29-inch D-handle models.
The 90100 has a clear, 3/16-inch vinyl sleeve that covers 55.5 inches of the handle.
