At Radius Garden we are pretty finicky about trowels. After all, the company was founded on a design for an ergonomic trowel, the Natural Radius Grip trowel. As I was bending over my raised bed one day last spring struggling to transplant some deeply rooted herbs I had the thought, "I really wish I had a trowel that was as easy to use as the Root Slayer Shovel." Within a week, the design was completed. We developed a new flared handle for extra comfort, adapted the Root Slayer Shovel as a trowel, added a twine cutter notch that doubles as a bottle opener and designed a durable nylon holster to carry it in. I can tell you from experience that the trowel works like a dream, not only for gardening, but also for opening craft IPA's. You'll never find a sturdier trowel to rip through roots and difficult soil. Strap the holster over your belt so you always have access to this handy tool. Lifetime guarantee.
