One side of this digging tool’s scoop is deeply-serrated (and sharpened!) to aid in cutting roots and vines, but it effectively looks like a 12″ long field knife — and a great way to accidentally scare the living crap out of your neighbors while gardening.

The “blade” is 7″ long, and its 5″ grip seems to come straight from the WWII K-Bar school of design with a red, ringed handle and a large hand-guard.  A belt-loop holster lets you keep it “at the ready.”   (We’re a little unclear on why one would put a muddy trowel back into a sheath, but you can.)

At $50 we think this tool should at least come with the complete “garden warrior action set” — including weed grenades and a trusty semi-automatic leaf rake — but $50 only nets you the tool and sheath.

Be careful: it’s a jungle garden out there.

    This is comically awesome. I should get this for my wife to carry around on her belt!, but could be pretty cool.

    This was featured in TOH Magazine this winter. These style tools are actually pretty handy- I like them for both mass planting annuals, and for dividings perennials. Fiskars make a nice version in the $15-20 range, but it doesn’t include a sheath.

    This looks like a lot like the “Japanese Farmer’s Knives” available from Lee Valley for about half the price:

    The Lee Valley ones look better, too.
