You surely have a number of specialized tools in your gardening kit, but the Nisaku Yamagatana Stainless Steel Limited Edition Garden Knife is a tool that you'll find yourself using for a number of tasks, all year long. This knife features a rugged steel blade with a polished finish and easy-to-read depth markings. This special edition model is forged with a higher quality DSR-1K6 stainless steel, a material that holds an edge better than typical stainless steel. The blade offers both straight and serrated sides, giving you the tool you need to plant, weed, split bulbs, trim small branches, or do a bit of pruning. The textured plastic handle makes it easy to hold, and it's also easy to keep track of with the included sheath.
