A landscape designer's favorite! There are so many uses for this Japanese-made tool but our favorite is for planting bulbs! This tool is used to make trenches for planing seeds and replanting bedding plants. In addition, it is also used to establish irrigation channels. The blade is forged steel pinned to the wood handle. Blade is 2" wide and 5.5" deep. Length of tool is 15".
Great tool for digging up difficult weeds. Be careful not to try and pry up a really big weed, I cracked the handle doing this. But my fault, not the tool. I highly recommend it as a great all around tool for the garden.Review by Susan (on 9/4/14)
