The best on the market. A remarkably strong flex-joint and Swiss steel blade that holds a superb edge. Imitations of this hoe invariably have weaker welds and inferior blades. Operates on a push-pull motion that works on both strokes, enabling you to slice weeds at their crowns, without hacking. Nuts and bolts are supplied with the replacement blades for easy replacement. You must order the 57" handle or the 8" handle separately.
