Really does a variety of jobs
OK but a bit disappointed

Out here in Arizona we have pretty hard soil, especially in the summer. The trowel does a good job on small new weeds but not on larger weeds with deep roots. Some of our "weeds" are actually baby trees that have tough roots which the trowel cannot cut through.
GREAT tool!

I love this tool for digging and planting and weeding. It goes through the toughest soil (and believe me, sometimes my dirt is more like rock than dirt), and it cuts small roots in a snap. It helps me get out small rocks and planting spring bulbs with it is a snap - I can just twirl it and it makes a circular hole. Good investment - feels like it will last forever.

Rip-saw teeth chop and cut Ultra-tough and lightweight carbon steel Comfortable grip
Chop, saw, and dig with a root trowel that does it all.

The lightweight trowel has an ergonomic handle to feel good while you’re at work, and is 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
