Soil From Digging Mention Stainless Steel

I find the curve of a trowel brings a lot more soil up with the weeds roots than does the flat blade of a soil knife.So what tools do i prefer? hori-horis/ japanese soil knives.I love the stainless steel hori-hori (which means diggy-diggy in japanese!) for all-around work.The blade stays sharp, smooth, and rust-free, and it has a sharp.
