Japanese planting trowel
A unique narrow polished stainless steel trowel from Japan, with a metric scale upon the blade, allowing easy judgement of depth when planting. The handle and blade are cut and cleverly formed from a single piece of steel, with only the addition a small reinforcing element inserted into the hollow handle midway through the process and held firmly in place by the bends and folds that complete the trowel. A good general purpose trowel. 28cm with a blade 15cm long by about 6cm wide.
