The Garden Shark is a ripper. Works very well on flax, ginger, Lily and any fibrous, ropey stemmed weeds. I use my tool always to cut back Chrysanthemum, Dahila, Penstemons etc. It really does make short work of this task. You grab a handful of foliage and rip right through it - cuts them like a hot knife in butter.
A truly excellent tool and a must for every gardeners kit.
Stainless Steel blade - 17.5cm long.
