Never destroy another good pruning saw on roots again. It's thin and brittle and will snap if bent too much. Root cutting is equally hard on hand pruners or loppers. It's easy to catch a pebble between the blade and hook and destroy your $80 Felcos.
Bob designed this root saw for the brutish work of severing tough, fibrous roots of trees and shrubs without breaking. Its blade is 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick along the back and its teeth are strong and aggressive. It cuts on the pull stroke. When you're spotting plants into a border and need to whack some roots, or when you're trying to stimulate a reluctant wisteria to bloom, this is the tool you want to stick into the ground.
This tool works for roots up to about two inches thick, but it is best for those one inch or thinner. For bigger ones, call us about our Root Remover. Or get a Pulaski or Cutter Mattock. Two sizes to choose from: Regular blade at around 8-10 inch blade and 13-15" total tool length. Long blade is around 10-12" in blade length and 15-18" overall.

This is an overdue review as I purchased this a while back. The construction is outstanding and the tool feels substantial. I used it a number of times clearing out a stubborn strip of daylilies. Major respect for the craftspeople at red pig who made this. I have no doubt it will last for decades even with heavy use.
