Wood handle, 6-3/4" long serrated steel forged blade will even cut through roots. The back side (underneath) is curved slightly to give it a scooping capability.

The Stainless Steel Knife (with the red wood handle) will never rust, but as it is less stiff than a plain Carbon Steel blade, it may flex a bit in heavy clay-like soils. The Carbon Steel Knife (natural colored handle) will never flex, although it will rust if not cleaned off after use and kept lightly oiled. You know which meets your standards best.

Essential Garden Tool!
Reviewed By:   (Hackettstown, NJ) 
I bought a Japanese digging knife several years ago. I got my husband one after he was constantly "borrowing" mine. An essential item; whether transplanting, dividing, cutting roots, prying out small rocks. The stainless steel knife cleans easily and never needs sharpening. Our son had to have one for Christmas. Best garden tool ever!

Somewhat Lighter Construction Than I Thought It Would Be
Reviewed By:   (Iowa City, Iowa) 
It's winter, so I've not had a chance to use the tool, but it looks like it will do okay. The construction is lighter weight than I assumed it would be. Also there are colorful kanji on the back side of the handle, which is fine by me. The sheath is very light weight.

Carbon Steel Japanese Digging Knife
Reviewed By:   (Saco, ME) 
The handle is poorly designed. It actually hurts my hand to use this tool. The handle pinches the skin between the wood pieces. I also feel that this blade will eventually bend.

I am frequently in the garden with a pocket or wheel barrel full of a sundry tools. Once I strapped this on my belt I felt freed from always searching for the right tool. I call it my "garden weapon"! It digs for planting, it prunes, it saws through stubborn roots, it cuts garden cord when strings and tying plants up. I love it.

A Great V-Day Gift
Reviewed By:   (Bonita Springs, FL) 
My husband gave me this tool for Valentines Day since he knew how tough it is to dig and plant here in Florida. Before I used it on him, I tried it and found that his knife or tool makes it easier to cut the roots and other strange things in the soil around our house. He is forgiven!
