Shagbark Hickory Handled Pointed Garden Hoe
Similar in design to the classic "Pointed Garden Hoe
" (Weeder), but with a fifteen inch long handle (twenty-two inches long overall), this tool was built with raised bed gardening in mind. Each tool head is individually and forged and the then married to the naturally finished, "bark on," 'Shagbark Hickory' handle using brass rivets.

The pointed end of the hoe head is also great for marking rows for seed sowing. The shape of the tool is reminiscent of a leaf, which is fun. The subtle patina and extra loop in the stem give this tool a great balance and modern flair. Enjoy the aesthetics and utility a truly one of kind creation made just for a gardener and lover of fine things.
The dimensions are approximately twenty two inches long by three inches wide.Note:
