The difference in your stock blade and the Trenchblade is that the stock flat blade is used to trim the grass between the concrete and turf and the turf and the bedlines. The Trenchblade is flailed .58 inches on each end in opposite directions creating a 2 inch wide trench in the ground. check out some of the photos on my website and you should be able to get a better understanding of the difference.

i went to the site and saw the photos, i noticed how the guy was modeling using the edger while the bed was on his right.

i typically follow a pattern that brings me around my houses, and all the beds i edge i keep the bed on my left, **** the edger slightly and it makes a nice beveled bedline... say you're looking at the house, start from the front far right corner of course, but coming up the driveway upon a bed, let the edger continue its line and angle it towards your left.

not only do i find it ridiculous to spend 600+ on that stupid echo idea, but i'll also keep my 4.50 for a trenchblade, and my customers will never know the difference to even care.
Right on, I thought I would try a couple trenchblades for my stick edger. Not worth it imo, just use a regular blade on a mulch bed and save the $4.50.
