This Potting Trowel has a wide, curved blade that is ideal for scooping potting mix, and it holds more soil than a traditional trowel. The unique shape also makes it handy for scraping around the inside of a pot to loosen the plant. The blade is hand-forged from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel. Unlike flimsy tools that are stamped from thin stainless steel, this tool is ready for a lifetime of use by serious gardeners. The handle is made of sustainably grown European ash hardwood.
