A useful digging tool


Recommended Posts

I don't know how many garage sale trowels I've ruined while digging down to a bench mark or other monument because they won't stand much prying force.  I recently saw one of these, a gardener's Nisaku NJP650 weeding and digging knife. 

Somewhat pricey at $20-25, but very sturdy, sharp edges for cutting roots or other vegetation, and inch and cm scales as a bonus. Much handier than a machete for those occasions when you don't need the length. It comes with a sheath but probably isn't legal to carry in public.  A downside is that it is sharp enough to cut utility lines that the old trowels wouldn't.
