Superb for digging, planting, tilling, weeding and even chopping through roots, this rugged tool has been hand crafted in the USA for over 50 years. Weighing less than a pound, it is comfortable to wield and surprisingly non-fatiguing in use. The 8 1/2" arc-shaped blade has a 2 1/2" wide edge at one end and a 7/8" edge at the other for precise work, each sharpened with a well-ground single bevel.
Heat-treated for durability, the blade is made from a single piece of rigid carbon steel and affixed with sturdy welds to the ferrule, then screwed and pinned to a 15" seasoned hardwood handle. Easy in the hand; a workhorse in the garden.
