5 Stars ANOTHER WINNER

TODD from MI wrote (December 21, 2012):

ANOTHER HIGH QUALITY AND USEFUL PRODUCT. I USE MY SOIL KNIFE FOR SO MANY THING WHEN I'AM WORKING IN MY YARD IT ELIMINATES CARRYING OTHER TOOLS AROUND!

5 Stars Great garden tool

Kevin M from MI wrote (December 21, 2012):

This is a great garden tool. I always have it at my side. I am on my second one. First one I broke the tip on. I tried to pull out a paver brink with it. It is not a pry bar. My bad. Should have walked to garage to get another tool. I like to give this as gift to my garden friends.

5 Stars Excellent, versatile tool

Deb from MA wrote (December 21, 2012):

I bought this soil knife after having used wooden handled-ones at a botanical garden. While I like a wooden handle, I appreciate the vivid orange plastic handle on this knife; it's not going to get lost in the garden, even if if winds up in a pile of weeds. I use it for weeding (works like a dream) and for bulb planting, and the depth markings make the bulb planting go more smoothly and give my bulbs a better chance at going in at the correct depth.

5 Stars Great tool

Richard,a landscape architect from KY wrote (October 02, 2012):

This soil knife is an indispensable tool for me. I've been using them for about 5 years commercially . From digging to cutting they can't be beat. I've only broken one in the years I've used them and Leonard's took care of it for me. So it's a well worthwhile investment.

5 Stars Every Landscape Crew Member Should Have This On Thier Belt

Definitive Landscape from OH wrote (August 02, 2012):

On my first call to AM Leonard, Jackie told me I needed this tool, well....she was right. When the forst one arrived one of the guys noted that it looks like a spartan sword from the movie "300" (look at the handle shape) and with bilingual crews the term "soil knife" isn't really very simple. We simply call this awesome tool the SPARTA. On a spring morning when going out to battle against hordes of budding weeds in landscape beds, it's a morale boost for crew members to know they have a solid tool at thier side. These days every landscape crew member carries a (pruner) and one of these babies on thier belt. All the turf crews have one in the door of thier trucks as well. If you want a three man crew to plant 140 flats of annuals in a day, for get the garden trowels, you need the Sparta. The depth gauge on the blade seemed silly to me when this model was released but if you tell the crew "plant the flowers 3" deep" and they actually have the measurement in front of them, they do a better job.
