Designed like a bread knife, the scalloped blade of this knife won't snag when cutting roots. At 6 5/16", the blade is long enough to cut through two layers of sod at once, so you can cut out the area you're replacing from a roll of fresh sod, ensuring a perfectly fitted patch. A 3 1/2" sharpened section at the tip of the spine allows more delicate cuts.
The stainless-steel blade is well formed and secured to the tang with a strong, smooth weld. Shaped for comfort, the beech handle is lacquered and has a stainless-steel ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting. 14 1/4" long overall, it is well balanced and comfortable to use.
