Our garden hoes differ from most American Pattern draw hoes in several respects. The blades are sharpened up the sides and the shanks have long swooping swan necks. This combination of features enables you to turn them on their sides and slice weeds on the backside of a planting without stepping into the bed. Moreover our choice of five lengths, ranging from 48 to 72 inches, allows you to select a tool suited to your stature. This, in turn, makes hoeing easier on your back, since you'll be standing upright instead of leaning forward. The six inch model is the standard width. The four inch wide tool is offered in case your plantings are more closely spaced than usual or you prefer a slightly lighter tool. The standard comes on a 54" handle. Add $2 for each additional 6"of handle length.
