A Small Tool I Can’t Live Without!

In fact it is so wonderful that I have bought extra to give as small Christmas presents. We are half way through the year so I can quite legitimately think of Christmas!

DSCF0011 It is a small pair of secateurs, which are really sharp, but which have a myriad of tools hidden in the handles. DSCF0013 On one side there is a pair of scissors, a small screwdriver, a little saw (I have yet to use this) and a rake. On the other side are DSCF0014 four more tools. A small spade, knife, stem stripper or pry bar and a ruler which doubles as a file. DSCF0016 The rake is most useful, especially for raking soil over seeds in a small pot. Used on end it will also firm them down too. DSCF0020 And as well it comes with a handy carry case which will fit on a belt for convenience. DSCF0019 And it is all stainless steel. I’m very pleased with mine and impressed with its usefulness. Now I just have to make sure I know where it is at all times!

  1. It looks excellent Val, beats having to go into the shed and pick out a load of different tools - of which I usually just end up using my hands! lol
