I ordered two as gifts. Very beautiful and functional. They were bigger than I imagined (it didn’t occur to me but hopefully you can easily tell by looking at the inches marked on the blade!) A good size for gardening. Feels solid and sturdy. I have used it to dig out weeds, cut roots, clean up holes and edges, prep area for planting ground covers. Yes, I did say it was a gift for other people but I have found it useful and probably get myself one, soon.
