Gardening Knife: Glücklich Gärtnern

A gardening knife I designed and made for Glücklich Gärtnern. A personal blog about the happiness from gardening. The blade is bent to make it easier to cut plants or roots. The handle is made out of one of the last parts I had of our old apple tree. The edge has a pretty sharp scandi grind. This knife is the first I heat treated in my new forge.
