Customer Reviews for Leonard Deluxe Stainless Steel Soil Knife

5 Stars Indispensable Tool

Barbara B. from OH wrote (April 25, 2014):

I wear this soil knife in the sheath on a belt all the time whenever I am outside in my yard or in my greenhouse. It is so versatile and useful....digging out a weed, cutting twine, dividing small perennials, potting plants....

5 Stars Essential tool for all gardeners

Richard from MA wrote (April 21, 2014):

Sturdy and versatile, this knife is truly one of the most indispensable tools out there. The orange handle makes it hard to lose.

5 Stars Most essential tool

Shaelee from WA wrote (April 18, 2014):

Love this, been using it on a nearly daily basis for over ten years- and it has lasted that long. Awesome for planting small things, making seed rows, weeding, transplanting, so many uses. I have had my original AML soil knife for ten years, and the new style for about three. Great product.

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.
