Best single tool

John from NC wrote (March 16, 2017):

This knife was recommended to me by a friend. I bought it, used it, and now I wouldn't do without it. When I step outside to do landscape work, the first thing I do is attach the sheathe, with knife, to my belt.

Indespensible

Don B from CO wrote (December 21, 2016):

This tool is something that every gardener should have. You won't realize until you have one how you got along without it. The plastic handle is very comfortable, the stainless blade is perfect for many garden tasks - pulling weeds, planting vegetables or bulbs, loosening soil on rootballs prior to planting, opening bags of soil, etc etc. It's darn near indestructible - the fact that the handle is overmolded on the blade means it's never going to come loose or break. The sheath is high quality leather and the belt clip is very strong (maybe a bit too strong, but I keep the sheath attached to a thin belt that I put on when working in the garden. I never go outside to work on yard projects without it!
