Also called a swan-neck hoe, this popular tool cuts weeds just below the soil surface. The ergonomic design lets you stand up straight while working, minimizing back strain, and the curved blade lets you work in tight spaces between plants and rows. To give it extra strength and durability, the wooden handle is bolted into the deep socket. Our Gardener’s Lifetime Half Moon Hoe is hand-forged in Holland from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel. Unlike flimsy stamped tools, this hoe is ready for a lifetime of use by serious gardeners. With a hardwood handle harvested from sustainably grown European ash, it feels good in the hand. Gardener’s Lifetime Tools are forged for us by a fourth-generation, Dutch family-owned business that has been crafting fine gardening tools for more than a century.
