Asian tool

Postby SONNY » Tue Jan 21, 2014 2:37 pm

Does/has anyone used one of these korean garden tools??? I just got one for this year and hope the thing works!---can already see problems with it being not only crude/heavy but could be hard on twisting old sore crippled wrists!---I have to go more towards small hand tools to use while on the creepers!---I will need to finish manufacturing it since they just hammered it out and slapped on a handle, NOT bothering to polish the blade which I think would be a must!--as soon as the ground gets workable I will know more about the thing! thanks; sonny

Sonny: Do you have a photo or a link showing the tool?
I have an excuse. CRS.

I assume you are talking about this picture I found on Kinsman Garden company site. For me the problem would be getting down to the ground to use it. and a bigger problem would be getting back up again.

i would think they would be very handy for raised beds.

Thanks John!!! thats the beastie!---the surface is real rough and has sharp chunks sticking up which will let moist soil stick to it.---I have to use the small hand tools from laying/sitting on the creepers! thanks; sonny
