Functional and extremely effective quality tool from A.M. Leonard for cutting weeds below the surface. The proper angle of the 2 ¾” blade allows for easy access into the soil to capture the majority of the root system. Its narrow tip comes in handy when weeding between stone and paved pathways and also makes a great companion for planting small annuals too. The forged steel construction includes additional heat treatment of the cutting blade to keep a good edge, even in tough soil conditions. The comfortable 7 3/4” contoured handle is finished for weather resistance. Overall length 13”.
The tool is well made with durable handle and lower metal cutter. I had the best results using it to dig holes for planting rooted plants. The heavy clay soil does make it more difficult to cut off weeds with longer roots.
