This weeding trowel is a nice alternative to a hori hori - that is, if a hori hori isn't quite the right tool for you. A hori hori handle is somewhat simplistic and chunky and some folks find it feels too big or uncomfortable in their hand. If I'm describing you, then you may want to try this tool. The ash handle is nicely shaped to fit your hand and is definitely more comfortable to hold and use for longer periods of time.
The sharp, pointed tip makes it ideal for bulb planting, planting out long-rooted seedlings and small plants that require a deep narrow planting hole. Also extremely useful for removing tap-rooted weeds from lawns or beds.
The stainless steel blade can be sharpened so that it glides through the soil, and easily cuts through roots when digging or dealing with girdled roots at planting time.
