This is a "Crows Foot" Garden tool. It's light weight but rugged. It's got a really nice rustic, rounded feel in your hand and goes through soil like nothing. You can use it to scratch the surface to loosen soil, drag a row for planting, or jab it into the soil to remove weeds. I use them for my raised beds and love them. They have a loop on the end for hanging which can also be used for thumb placement when digging vertically. Just a good old garden tool that you'll love for years. A good tool at a great price!
