Ever since the discovery of the spork, people have been trying with limited success to combine two implements into one and give it a catchy contracted name. Now some company has decided to merge two indispensable gardening tools, the rake and the trowel, into what they call the Trake.
Tierra Derco (Hen-Feathers Studios) casts the tool from aluminum, with a pointed measured trowel on one end and a narrow rake on the other, and they coat the handle with green vinyl for a comfortable grip. Besides only having to carry one tool, an advantage of combining the two tools end to end is that the 17″ total length provides a longer reach and more leverage.
Pricing for the Trake starts at $17.
