Frequently Asked questions
Can this trowel be used in rocky ground or soil with a lot of roots?
Absolutely. The shaft and hardened blade are made to the same specification as avalanche shovels, so the Alloy trowel will chop through rocky soils or roots with ease.
Is it worth the premium over a ‘garden center’ plastic trowel?
Definitely. Broken remains of plastic trowels are often discarded in the backcountry, which is the absolute antithesis of Leave No Trace. This won't be an issue with the Alloy Trowel.
