Made to our specifications, this high-quality weeder will easily last a lifetime. With it, you can remove shallow-rooted weeds by lifting them from below or loosen the soil around deep roots to make them easier to pull out. Besides the beech handle, all components are stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance. The tines are well formed and secured to the tang with a strong, smooth weld. Shaped for comfort, the handle is lacquered and has a ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting.
