Ring knife

Handy Twine Knife Co. has introduced a new blade style to its line of ring knives: Razor’s Edge is made in the U.S. of hardened stainless steel and designed with a pointed tip and straight edge to make it easier for nursery and landscape pros to cut burlap and ground cloth, to loosen root-balls, as well as prune and harvest flowers and fruits. Wear the blade on your hand – seriously – so it’s always handy.
