I have this knife for +5 years. It is a nice enough knife though the blade is not full tang. On several instances the blade has detached from the handle and I have to shove it back in.

Reviews seem to be polarizing, so ill pass.
I have an earlier version of this knife - I'm trying to remember if it was already Fiskars or if they purchased the company that made it. The blades appear to be identical. I would say the tip is better than the the traditional Hori Hori, or Japanese gardening knife. The slightly forked end is great for getting around taproots. Then you strike the end sharply with the palm of your hand, and voila - cut root.

The saw edge works, but is the least useful feature. It's going to dull with time, you are digging in soil. I have used it when I'm laying on my stomach digging in a hole (bending my back is a problem) and if I don't have my Sears mini-digger with me, I've used it. The regular knife edge is perfectly good. The little rope cutter inset hole works, but is sharp and set right up against the pommel. I've cut the outer palm of my hand with a short very shallow cut when using it without gloves and pushing really hard. They've added a little guard to prevent that from happening.

As a digger any Hori Hori style knife is OK for planting the little plants from a flat, especially in a well prepared bed. IMHO I would not use any gardening knives to plant perennials/small shrubs in your standard 1 quart nursery pot - it's not the right tool, I find those little children's shovels perfect but I have XL hands.

I have had no problems with rusting. My version has a metal end cap. It's become a little loose over time (I've used it as a hammer, though) but it's just a tiny little bit and I've stopped abusing it, and it doesn't seem to be any worse. The OP version does not have the metal cap (and hence does encourage you to use it as a hammer) so I cannot comment on the changes made. I do know even now since that small amount of play developed I've used it to pry around rocks/heavy roots, so it's not a problem for "designed abuse."

Fiskars makes quality products but has been an easy company to work with from my experience. I have their weeding tool that I had for a few years, couldn't remember where I bought it from and had no receipt. I was prying in some hard soil and it snapped at the handle. On their website I filled out the claim and included a picture and within 2 weeks I had a new one at my door. No return on the broken product necessary. They have a guarantee that you can actually use with minimal hassle. At this price I'm in!
