This sturdy trowel is designed to reduce effort in digging, planting and garden maintenance. The tool is nicely balanced, and the blade is angled for optimal comfort and efficiency when digging. The heavy-gauge, 3mm blade and shaft are made from heat-treated stainless steel that is durable and rust-resistant. An attractive blackened finish gives it a vintage feel. The handle is turned from bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource. All sharp edges feature single-bevel chisel grind that can be easily resharpened. The blade is riveted and welded to the shaft. The barbed shaft extends 6" into the handle and is secured with strong metal adhesive and collar. Leather hanging loop.

Point Well Taken, and Purchased
from Baltimore, MD
Comments about : Barebones™ Trowel:
The tip broke off of my old trowel and this is a great replacement. I like the sturdiness, the handle, the metal of this one. Old school looking which is so my style. Left off a star because I think the handle could be a little more ergonomically designed for the millennial edition of this old school tool.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes I have used one just like it. It is a good size and pointed so it is easy to dig with.

Great for digging up small plants and planting.
Trowel for the ages
I was looking for a trowel that would last a long time AND get into the HARD dirt of New Mexico. This is it! At first I was discouraged about gardening in NM, but being a Vermonter, I knew about Gardeners Supply so started looking there for tools I knew would work in this hard soil and last a long time and of course I found it with you. ‼️
Pros and Cons
By Florida Garderner
from Ocala, FL
I like the thickness of the digging part compared to other trowels, but the metal stem is not sturdy enough; it bends if you hit any resistance (like a small root).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good quality tool
from New Jersey
After buying two trowels that bent backward with some force, I'm happy with the quality of this one. Strong arm, nice wood handle.
