I used my birthday money on this and a Niwaki hand hoe when visiting the Market Harborough Eco Village. I've only used it once but am impressed and can see it's going to give me years of good service. The handle is FSC marked which is important and the blade very strong. I've used it to easily clear weeds from inside my 1/2 greenhouse (my long handled small headed hoe always risks breaking the glass as I clatter around) and even clear bindweed top growth. I think I might invest in the leather holster as the canvas one, whilst strong, is going to get dirty pretty quick. Very pleased and has helped me start to build quality into my shed collection.
I wasn't sure about these tools but saw my neighbour using one and decided to go for it. Wish I had got one of these years ago. It cuts into soil with ease to remove weeds with little damage to the surrounding turf, great for use when potting plants, the edge is super sharp for opening compost sacks. Really good all rounder and well worth the money. Also very robust in its construction, can't see it being broken very easily. Very happy!
