A convenient length for working in raised beds or from a seated or kneeling position, this medium-handled trenching hoe is made to our specifications and will easily last a lifetime. About 23" long overall, it lets you reach farther than a typical hand tool while still being easy to maneuver. It has a 4" wide, 5 1/2" long spear-point blade that's equally useful for weeding, furrowing or breaking up soil. The bevelled edges slice under soil to sever roots and remove shallow-rooted weeds.
Besides the beech handle, all components are stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance. The blade is well formed and secured to the tang with strong, smooth welds. Shaped for comfort, the handle is lacquered and has a stainless-steel ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting.
A well-balanced and surprisingly lightweight tool for its size.
A mid-length three-prong cultivator, bed rake, crack weeder and bulb planter are also available, sold individually or in sets.
