We might have called the Root Slayer Soil Knife the Root Slayer Hori Hori, but we were afraid people might not know about one of the oldest and most essential garden tool designs of all time. Based on original Japanese designs, but updated with modern materials and style, the Root Slayer Soil Knife can perform the functions of almost any hand tool in the garden. Use it as a substitute for a trowel, transplanter, cultivator, or most importantly, a weeder. This handy digger will cut through root-filled, heavy clay soil with surprising ease. When in the lawn, garden, or potting shed, we never like to be without this versatile garden tool. Strap the holster over your belt so you always have access to this handy tool. Delivered with an enamel powder coating, the Root Slayer Soil Knife features an array of a dozen saw-like cutting teeth on one side, a long sharp blade on the other side, the signature Root Slayer inverted V blade tip, and a combination twine cutter and bottle opener near the ergonomic grip. Feel free to sharpen any or all of the high-carbon steel cutting surfaces for a very long lasting edge. Lifetime guarantee.
