I love the color - strenght and feel of this shovel. My loyal and stronger employee will use nothing else and so I had to get one for both of us. Greatest thing since sliced bread
A great reiteration of a spade shovel

We where particularly impressed with the Root Slayer Shovel. As Landscape Professionals our people can be very picky as to the tools they like to use. This shovel has passed with flying colors and prompted us to buy a total of six more of these shovels so far!!! This is a great reiteration of a spade shovel

This shovel has been worth it's weight in gold to me. I like the weight and the small size and can cut thru roots.

So practical. I moved to an old house on some unmaintained property and have been root slaying away!
All talk

The handle folded in half on my first one. Grommet warranties it. The second one isn't much better. The handle needs to be stronger.

Rip-saw teeth chop and cut Ultra-tough and lightweight carbon steel Comfortable grip
Chop, saw, and dig with a root shovel that does it all. Its carbon steel blade is shaped like an inverted V and is lined with rip-saw teeth that make quick work of the roots you might encounter while gardening. The lightweight shovel has an ergonomic handle to feel good while you’re at work, and it’s guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Radius Garden

Radius Garden Founder Bruce Baker created the Root Slayer family of root shovels to streamline digging, chopping, and sawing while you’re hard at work in the garden. And because Bruce always has usability and function in mind, his tools are ergonomic, durable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

These toughened up garden tools are made from strong but lightweight carbon steel, and all have an inverted-V cutting blade that’s lined with rip-saw teeth—this is where the slaying action comes from. The blade’s design is purposefully more narrow than typical tools to give you better access and leverage around roots. Ergonomic grips boost comfort, and there are even smart add-ons—like a twine cutter and bottle opener—built into the trowel and soil knife. These tools are a smarter way to get the dirty, root-removing job done. more Their Story
