A brilliant tool for so many different uses. It has a 6" stainless steel blade that comes with a hard plastic sheath. It has one serrated and one straight edge - and they are sharp.
It can be used for planting, weeding or transplanting.
The first time I brought one into my garden I used it to dig some some holes for planting seeds, cutting some Jute for tying my bean plants, and for cutting the roots of a dead Bonsai tree that had gotten stuck in a pot. I found myself reaching for it over and over.
