QuoteUnlike western garden hand-tools the Niwashi uses an angled blade that cuts into the soil as you pull it towards yourself. A more comfortable and nature action. The sharp blade makes light work of breaking up compacted garden beds, removing stubborn weeds and turning over soil for planting.
Quote from: Lee on February 01, 2007, 12:51:45 pmNiwashi is actually just a word that means "gardener." Therefore, the tool in the link is called something like "The Gardener."
