Revolutionary Shovel Gets to the Root of It All!

The Root Assassin is a unique shovel featuring an aggressive saw edge on both sides of the blade with a specially designed narrow nose that allows it to penetrate the ground and cut through roots all at the same time. It's ideal for digging in compact soil that is overrun with roots, separating perennials, digging trenches and more.

A reinforced rubber D-grip handle provides comfort while adding leverage and control. Solid steel construction with 14-gauge blade. This shovel is surprisingly lightweight at only 4 lbs. Forward turned-step for secure foot placement. Overall length 4ft.

Root Assassin Shovel


I bought the shovel to dig up and divide large perennials and ornamental grasses. Very happy with the slicing power, especially if you dig/slice on all sides of the clump. Shovel works better in moist soil. I used a different shovel with more prying power to lift the clump out of the ground. The root assassin could have sturdier prying power but still a great tool and I would highly recommend.
