It seems odd to put a small trowel on a long handle until you use it. The cold rolled steel trowel blade is wide enough to use your foot on and is ideal for small planting jobs and preparing holes where a normal shovel won’t fit. This head can also be used on its own as a hand tool. All welded steel construction. Zinc coated to prevent rust. Handles sold separately. See "View Related Items" link above for handle and additional attachment options. Made in Germany.
