As listed in other reviews this is HANDY for so many different jobs. Since I am older and my hands are more sore than they use to be, I grab this often when I would have grabbed a hand trowel, even to plant a one gallon plant. It divides plants well with its sharp edges & digs patches of "weed grass" out of my lawn. Anywhere I need to dig a little, this tool goes with me. This tool allows me to enjoy aspects of gardening that were beginning to be a chore, and will enable me to enjoy gardening for many more years. GREAT TOOL!

Perfect size for those in-between jobs where a hand trowel is not enough and a full-size spade is too much. The handle on the end really helps to grip and gain leverage, and the blade is good and sharp. The overall feel of the tool is beautifully crafted, a pleasure to use, and feels like it will last a lifetime.

When holding this tool for the first time you can't stop but think of an old midevil ax or something--it looks like no other tool I've had before. The truly handmade nature of these tools is evident.
I used this shovel to help me split a huge ornamental grass I was dividing. If you've ever tried to split one of these grasses then you know how tough it can be--this "little guy" worked well and is nice and sharp.
I plan to use this tool in conjunction with my transplanting spade.
Great little tool and it's worth having in the tool shed--plus it just looks so cool!! :)
