11P23.05 Japanese Angled Root Cutter

In stock


This is a wonderfully simple tool that any gardener or homeowner will love. It is small, can be slipped in your pocket, and has an aggressively serrated 2-3/4" blade set at about a 30 degree angle to the wood handle. Stick it in any hole in the ground that you need to clean up, push the blade against the root or stalk, and pull straight up, cutting the root cleanly with minimal fuss. This is a great tool. Stainless steel blade.

Made In Japan.

  • Can't Live Without This Tool

    Christina, 7/24/2015 This is a great little tool for cutting roots, vines, grass, all sorts of things in the garden. It makes quick work of most tasks. I lost mine, so I ordered two replacements, just in case.
  • Garden Tool

    Barb, 5/18/2015 Replaced at least 4 tools. Cultivates, digs, cuts vines, weeds, etc. Works in tight spaces. Best all-around garden tool for ground level work I ever had - and I have a lot of them.
  • Useful Tool

    Carolyn Carney, 1/20/2015 This is a very useful tool, I recently received it and happily a week later we got one of those rare beautiful NC winter days, perfect for some garden clean up work. I needed to tidy up some iris leaves (I have a lot of the very large yellow flag) and this tool was brilliant for cutting them back, made short work of a tiresome task.
  • Looks Are Deceiving

    Raul Rodriguez Jr., 8/9/2014 When I first received it I was disappointed at the size and it's weight made me think it was flimsy. How wrong I was. Today I put it to the test and task after task it passed with flying colors. It cuts thru roots easily and fits just right in the hand. I cut grass roots, plant roots, small branches, dead banana tree leaves and sliced open bags of potting soil. This blade is a must for any gardener, professional or hobbyist.

  • My Green Thumb" Wife LOVES THIS!"

    Marvin Howard, 4/28/2014 My wife -the gardener- tried this out on some pesky low shrub roots that had resisted EVERY other tool she tried, and came in to tell me how this was one of the greatest gardening tools she had ever used! It cut quickly, cleanly and predictably! She then tried it on some perennials that died during the winter, and again she raved about how this cut through even the densest clumps of stems like a hot knife through butter". Almost no effort required by her... the tool did all the work! Thanks GW for allowing me to score all kinds of points with my "Green Thumber"!"
  • Deceptively Effective!

    Rhonda Thibault, 2/25/2014 I bought this tool 2 years ago. When it arrived my husband laughed at it because it is very lightweight and it honestly looks a bit flimsy. However, I pretended it was exactly what I wanted, took it outside, and proceeded to easily and quickly cut out a new garden bed, taking up a huge heavy and thick mat of turf. My husband admitted he was wrong about this tool. I did as well, but silently to myself of course!
  • Small, Quick and Sharp

  • Ivy Wrecker

    Charlie, 6/12/2010 This tool made an awful job of removing well-established ivy from my yard a piece of cake. It is also effective is cutting heavy grass and weeds above ground. Buy it!
  • Fabulous Tool For Weeding

    MVH1, 5/25/2010 There are a lot of very deep-rooted weeds in my flower bed. I just dig in with this and cut and pull. It's great. For really tough weeds to remove below the surface.
  • Great Little Tool

    Marissa, 4/15/2010 This is the perfect little tool for cutting through the tough roots of any plants, but especially great for bonsai.
  • Japanese Angled Root Cutter

    Jack and Beatrice Collins, 3/31/2009 My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed this tool since friends told us about it. We have numerous beds of daylilies and perennials in our yard surrounded by variegated liriope and this tool is the best way we have found to cut the dead liriope foliage in the late winter or early spring. Just a simple pull and you have a handful of cut foliage. We have recommended it to others in our daylily club and our neighborhood.
