This is a wonderful all-purpose hoe. The head of the hoe is about 5.75″ wide and about 2.5″ tall. It is cut in one piece and bent into shape from the hardened steel of a reclaimed agricultural disc blade. The hoe is sold sharp on all three sides and may be turned on its side to get into tight places. The weight and balance of this hoe make it a great choice for women or men who need a great tool! It comes on either a 54″ or 60″ straight-grained 1-1/4″ diameter shaped Ash handle.
