With the light use, the place where the handle is joined with trowels is broken. Can't imagine why a reasonable sturdy trowel can't be made. I used it only in pots to loosen and add soil and fertilizer.
Super light weight and great design I use it for gardening and indoor plants extensively. Even stir my compost using this. I cannot stress enough on how handy this will be to dig up garden soil and use it to add or remove soil in pots
