I purchased this tool about 2 years ago and wonder how I ever survived without it! It is so handy. If I run into a root while digging, you can just flip it over to the serrated side and cut right through the root. It fits comfortably in my hand and is very well made. My sister helped me in my gardens last summer and I almost didn't get it away from her. I gave her one this year for her birthday and she was so pleased. Thank you for a wonderful tool.
I received one as a gift a few years ago and now I don't enter the garden without it and the pruners. This tool is incredibly versatile; weeding, small plantings, scraping weed seedlings, cutting through smaller roots, etc.. Am now purchasing four as Christmas gifts. Be warned: this tool is sharp...but that is what makes it so great.
