Trake 2: The sequel

New Trake
The second Trake arrived today and I can already feel an increase in our leverage over the local weed population.

It came with a tag that proclaims it to be part of the "Hen-Feathers" collection.

Its 16 inch length and 25 degree angle are nice, but its one piece cast construction is what makes it such a gem in my eyes.

I'd like to see an oversize version of it as a piece of garden sculpture in some fancy park in the city. That would be some outside art I could get behind.

This one has a green grip, which I'm thinking of securing with electrical tape to avoid the scrunching that happened to the original after hours of heavy use.
