This small multi-purpose digging tool is great in small spaces, raised beds, and campgrounds. It is an absolutely awesome weeding tool and a great metal-detecting shovel, too! Shorter than the Root Slayer Nomad the Root Slayer Mini-Digger is a fantastic traveling tool as well as a garden essential. The blade is the same as we use for the Root Slayer Nomad, so you can rely on its sharp edges and strength without ever worrying about bending. The shaft is lightweight super-durable pultruded fiberglass.
