Hi Terry, I have not used this yet, but I will so so in Spring when I will be repotting some of my trees. So far, I like the smooth finish and how light it feels. Best of all for me is that it is two tools in one, saving me a bit of money.
For a budget tool this is sufficient and effective and since I am a beginner I am happy with the purchase. I'm not sure whether the tweezer part on the handle will always be comfortable but I will continue to use it until I need to upgrade to two separate tools.
