Great until you hit a whopper of a stone and the tool bounces a mile into the air. I'll stick with my spade I think.

I would have imagined that the woman was just doing it that way for the demonstration?

...but if all you're doing is turning the soil over, what's wrong with a fork? At least you won't break anything if you hit a stone, tree root, etc. Nice looking tool though - would be very handy for clearing ditches - but I imagine they're quite expensive?

Also, the humble spade is handy as a shovel for moving the soil away from the hole you're digging (as well as doubling up as a handy bat for snowballs and, when no-one is looking, a passable air guitar!)
