A custom garden tool

No, that is a hoe not a saw.  But it is marked SAW.  It's a b-day present for a customer's wife.  I thought it would be neat to personalize the project.   The head is forged 5160 spring steel welded to a 3/8 in square bar.  It's quenched in oil to give it a rust resistant coating.  We then rivet the head into the handle so it will take a lot of abuse.  It is pretty small so it is light in the hand and makes quick work of weeding around sprouts and young delicate plants.
