One of our favorite tools in the garden. The blade is seven inches long and convex, like that of a plow with a sharp point broadening to a width of 3 inches. Terrific for digging, because the sharp point cuts deep, but the smooth surface of the blade gently pushes the soil to the surface to trench rows. Great for digging holes for plants and bulbs. Hand-forged and designed for right-handed people, an all-around must have for gardeners.
