Gardening knife (blade length 17cm) with riveted ash wood handle
My absolute favourite tool and I can no longer live without it!
It's perfect for hard, dense soil and makes digging out planting holes a doddle. I also use it to trim roots, divide plants and even remove weeds – it's simply the best (excuse the terrible pun).
I now kind of get that boy scouts' obsession with owning a pocket knife...
