Fiskars has been bringing out a lot of garden tool products over the last couple of years, and one of the latest is the Fiskars Big Grip Garden Knife. This is a general-purpose garden tool that has many uses.
The Fiskars garden knife features a large grip and it has an oversized “blade”. The knife part of the blade can be used for weeding, it’s great for digging out weeds like dandelions and other lawn weeds, and of course is great for flower beds or vegetable gardens. The blade can also be used for cutting sod, freeing bound roots, transplanting seedlings, and digging up bulbs.
The blade has a serrated edge on one side to make it more effective for cutting, and it also has a trough down the center that helps in transplanting seeds and seedlings. The tip of the blade has a notch to help with weeding. As with most Fiskars garden tools, the blade is coated to help prevent rust. The handle has a hole to hang it from, and it has the typical Fiskars lifetime warranty.
The most common complaint with the Fiskars garden knife is that if it breaks, it will break at the point where the knife blade is attached to the handle. If that does happen it seems Fiskars will replace it. I’d suggest that when using it you keep in mind it’s a knife and not a shovel, so don’t apply all the force you can muster when using it.
