The great advantage of this hoe is that it positions the blade perfectly horizontal, so you can cut into the soil and remove weeds from below the surface just by raising or lowering the handle slightly.
Using it in a back-and-forth shuffling motion, letting it glide along the ground, allows you to work for long periods without straining your back.
Blade is 7" wide and sharpened on all edges. Mounted on a 60" ash handle for an overall tool length of 68".
