Made to our specifications, this high-quality weeder will easily last a lifetime. It has a sharp slicing blade and thin-profile hook for weeding between walkway and patio stones. 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 a strong, smooth weld. Shaped for comfort, the handle is lacquered and has a ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting.
