Japanese Farmer's Knife
This handy, wide-bladed knife has two edges: one side is serrated for cutting through thick root masses, and the sharpened side cuts string, makes holes, and helps pop out deep roots. We wash off the dirt and return the knife to its belt sheath on my tool bucket. The 12-1/2-inch concave blade is stainless steel. The Lee Valley Tools version is $26.50.
