This is a small, one hand version of the larger Warren hoe that is common around vegetable gardens. The smaller version was made during the 1930-1950 era. I had one from my personal collection of antique tools on display in my store. So many people tried to buy it that I began making them. It's a nice tool for working in vegetable beds, making little furrows and slicing or pricking out weeds. The blade is a bit wider than a V-hoe--4 inches versus two--and about half the size of the blade on a full size, pole mounted Warren hoe.
