Multi-functional landscaping trowel with curved blade. One side of the blade is serrated for jobs requiring hacking and sawing while the other is smooth for cutting and slicing. This clever design means that with a simple twist of the wrist you can cut and lift out stubborn weeds in your garden. The blade and the ergonomic hardwood handle are carefully balanced to reduce wrist fatigue. The blade's center is engraved with millimeter markings to help gage depths which is useful for a number of tasks in the garden such as bulb planting.
It cuts and scrapes weeds, roots and vegetables. Ideal for cutting roots, transplanting, removing stubborn plants, sod cutting and dividing perennials. The protective sheath keeps the blade clean and sharp while not in use but also protects you while you carry it around the garden. The sheath has an integrated belt loop for convenient and safe transport while the blade handle has a hanging lanyard for ease of storage.
Can be used for digging, sawing, chopping, measuring, right through to hunting and fishing. One edge has a smooth, sharp blade to glide through stubborn weeds while the other side is serrated to allow you to saw through tough roots or boughs. The blade itself is polished to a beautiful mirror quality shine and the handle is riveted for heavy duty use so you can work with your Hori Hori blade time after time without fear of wear and tear.
