Same style blade as the 14" Digging Trowel, but the extra length between the 8" blade and the easy-to-hold handle gives you even more leverage for naturalizing projects. These strong one-piece tools are nearly indestructible, and will not bend, even when digging in hard soil. Forged stainless steel V-shaped blade is 3" wide, has a sharp point for piercing sod or soil, and an etched depth guide. A comfortable non-slip easy-grip plastic handle, and a leather thong for wrist or hanging. Made in Iowa.
