I've always been an advocate of hoes. Louise wasn't so sure - especially with the design of this one.
We don't stock products that we haven't tested out for ourselves. I'm pleased to report that she's been converted by this tool.
The first thing we noticed was how light (170 grams) and easy it was to use - on both the push and pull stroke. It's also really easy to use it to precision weed (if that's a thing?) - around the base of plants and in between rows on the veg patch.

As this item is hand forged please expect to see some hammer marks and black coke marks on the surface. These add to the unique character of each tool and do not affect the durability or quality of the tool in anyway.
The handle is made from Cherry and replacements are available if ever needed.
