Made of two pieces of wood which are lashed together at right angles by rawhide. The larger piece of wood is the handle. The widest part of the handle is where the other piece of wood is lashed to it through two holes in the handle. The widest part of the handle is where the other piece of wood is lashed to it through two holes in the handle. From there the handle tapers off to the very tip which is approximately 1/2" wide. The second piece of wood which is actually used for digging roots is shaped like a tent. One end is sharpened to a point through use. The other end is fitted onto the handle and secured.
