I'm still playing with the spork, trying to figure out what it has to offer that a fork or trowel doesn't. It's good for digging out something where it is enough to slice the roots an inch or so below soil level, and it works pretty well as a trowel, especially if there is any moisture in the soil.
The tool is well made, sturdy, and likely to stand up to years of use.

The pictures do it justice, but actually holding it makes the uses intuitive. It will dig with ease, aerating as you do, and it will also cut weeds with one pass. The edges are sharp. The design pushes the weeds into the notch. What doesn't get cut by the edges—unlikely, in most cases—will get caught in the notch and be easy to yank out.

Had to get dirt out of some old pots and boy was this handy, can't wait till spring rolls around so I can use it some more. The nice thing is that it is not too big so I can store it easily and use it for so many things.
