Best Garden Hand Tool Ever

Customer from PA wrote (January 18, 2018):

I always carry this with me. You will never buy a trowel again. Italian quality.

best gift

gene from NC wrote (December 08, 2017):

This is my favorite gift to give to gardening friends. I especially like the ergonomic handle and high visibility orange, as I've misplaced wooden handled digging knives in the leaf and soil litter. It's also very sturdy, so can be used to lever and chop, or even slice string and compost bags with the serrated edge.

Classic soil knife is great

Petunia from CA wrote (September 20, 2017):

Stainless Steel Soil Knife - can't garden without it!

Volunteer Gardener from PA wrote (September 04, 2017):

The tool was originally given to me as a gift. I now have six of them (one for each gardening location). It's the most useful gardening tool that I own.

BESDT & MOST VERSATILE AND USEFUL TOO IN MY GARDENING TOOLS

Lee Siglin from IA wrote (August 06, 2017):

this is the first version of the garden knife I bought years ago---I recently purchased it again as I misplaced mine in the garden and have not yet found it---and I certainly can't imagine trying to garden without it. I also bought the deluxe version and both are the best garden tools I ever bought---I use them constantly. If I had to part with all of my other garden tools and just keep one tool this knife would be the thing I kept, without a doubt. I absolutely LOVE it and consider it the best garden tool I ever bought!
