:usflag:Thanks I put some new sod down at my house and I just kind of tore it with my hands. It helped that it was drenched though. I know that was not the correct way to do it and I would never do that at a customers house. Just wondering thanks though!:usflag:

Yeah at that job i used a spade or i like to call it a edging shovel! But i think the meat knife works the best, yet my 2 workers seems to lose them on me all the time! Thanks for the comments guys...have a great and safe season!:clapping:

We use Razor utility knives to cut sod. They work great.
