Herkules is a sharp, heavy-duty lawn-edging tool. Its half-moon head is made of a thick piece of work-hardened bronze. The shaft is ash and the T-handle is beech. It has a wide lip to put your welly on. The metal keeps its sharp edge, so it is a hardworking tool. We find it useful for chopping up the compost in the compost bin, too (as long as we avoid any creatures that have taken up residence there).
