what's your favorite small hand garden tool?

I was thinking about this when I was using mine this morning. What's everyone's favorite hand garden tool? Mine has to be a combination hoe and cultivator on a hand tool size handle. That baby can whack through about anything! Jeff bought it for me about 2 years ago and I just love it!

Got a pic? I think I need one...and likely everything I don't already have.
I'll have to ponder just exactly which one is my favorite...there are quite a few of them.

A friend has this wonderful digging tool with a long handle. She nor I nor anyone else knows just exactly what it is. I hope later today to get a pic of it when I go to see her, so I can get a name and then hopefully find me one. We're going on a wildflower dig, and it is just the berries to dig in the wild, being assured of getting all the roots that are deep.

No favorites here,seems like they all serve their purpose in individual ways. The one I use most though is my long handled trowel,so nice and easy on the wrists! :)

My heavy-duty kitchen shears....good for cutting, poking, prying, scrunching, scooping, packing and a little light tapping....although usually not all at the same time....LOL!!
