new Shim was designed after repeated requests
from gardeners. Its arched stem and lightweight
shaft enables operators to reach over and work
into crowded borders from a path. Precise and
reliable in its forward action, it will also cut
on the return stroke, using either edge of the
backward facing triangle. This is a much better
arrangement than a forward facing triangle and
it makes for accurate mid-summer hoeing. The steel
blade is unusually hard so will remain sharp.
Burnished and shaped ash handle.
