The bill hook is a steel blade knife with a hook at the end and looks a bit like a cross between an ax and a knife. In the garden, it is useful for trimming and maintaining thickets, brambles and other dense and thorny areas. The hooked part of the blade can be used to grab branches and pull them out of the thicket without having to reach inside a thorny hedge.
