Each piece is forged by master blade craftsmen with the highest grade Japanese stainless steel for durability, precision and control that withstands intense use and harsh conditions.
To be honest, while this is listed with the gardening tools, I have yet to use it for that purpose. I have used it while scraping paint from hard to reach places, and if you look at a photo side by side with a generic 5 in 1 painters tool, they look similar. But don't let the similarity lead you to believe they are the same. The tool from Nisaku is amazingly well made, far better than the generic models found in a big box store. The blades, both main and side are amazingly sharp and seem to be made from very good steel. The handle is longer and more ergonomic. It has a good feel in the hand. The metal end cap is a nice feature, protecting the end if you need to give it a few light taps with a mallet. I highly recommend this for garden and general household work. Its a great tool.
