The hardwood handle is 40 long. The wide blade has a very large surface area of over 36 sq in - giving you an easy ability to push around a lot of loose soil. This may not sound like a big deal but if the soil is well prepared you will be able to work much faster than you could with a tool with a reduced surface area. It's a very good tool.

  • Sharp & Light

    Brian, 6/10/2014 Extra wide, light, & sharp tool makes work very easy. An even longer handle would be great. I have no issues when using this great tool.
  • Garden Tools

    Lynn Andrews, 4/15/2014 I am never disappointed in what I order from Garrett Wade. I just received the two garden tools which I ordered and of course I had to try them out immediately. They are WONDERFUL. Great to have tools that are so sharp and make the idiocy of picking up small weeds such an easy job. Nice and sharp and great design. Being of a older type person.....I need all the help I can get and these are just two more of the fabulous tools you sell. My favs are still my beautiful folding scissors from France. I have given these scissors to about 6 good people who really deserved something nice in their lives. Ah perfection .....as always from Garrett Wade. I thank you very much.
  • Long Handled?

    Joe Schuttert, 7/28/2013 The design of the hoe is great, saves me a lot of time keeping my 200 plant Dahlia garden weed free. I found the 40 handle to be too short. I went to a millwork shop and got an 84" length of poplar and made a new handle. I planed to cut it to the proper length after I used it for a while. For me the 7' handle works great. I can weed standing straight up. "
  • Weeds be Gone

    Bob Parker, 6/21/2013 We have a lot of weeds on our property in the spring. We spray, and then get down on our hands and knees to cut off the remains. This tool lets me do the second step standing up, saving the knees and pants. The only issue with Japanese tools is that usually they are not stainless, so you have to be careful about storing them.
