Traditional tools are often the most effective, and this one is no exception. Japanese made, it has a thin, sharp blade that slices easily through weeds just below the soil surface. It is lightweight, comfortable to use, and maneuverable around closely spaced plants.
The hand-forged, laminated 4-1/2" blade combines a hard carbon-steel face with a shock-absorbing softer steel back for increased durability. The handle is hardwood. Measures 13-1/2" long overall. Available in a right-hand or left-hand model.
An effective, well-made tool.
