pointy garden trowel wanted

I used to have with a pointed hand trowel with a wooden handle, but the wood rotted because I did not take care of it right. I want to buy another. I looked on ebay, but I can't find one that is pointed enough. This one was really sharp at the end and it was my go to item for everything. Some of the ones called tranplanter might work, I don't know. When I look at them I can't find one. I got a so called sod cutter, which is the next best thing. Can anyone suggest a brand I should look for. It has to be tough metal, as weak metal bends in hard soil and I have to discard them.

I have had one like this for several years. Works great and is stainless steel.

I think the one I had before was an ace, but the logo had worn off. I saw an ace and it was just so much more cheaply made, I did not think that was mine, but I bought it today and took it home and I think I had an ace.

It is for lily of the valley

They turned into a weed big time. I have to dig them out with a very pointedly tool. The lily of valley was great at first, but the roots are killing my other plants, but encasing them in solid roots.
