The tools we make at Red Pig Garden Tools are generally heavy duty and designed to outlast your general off the shelf garden tools under heavy use. To complement our our line and offer gardeners who need or want lighter duty tools, we offer high quality tools made in Japan as an alternative option where we see a good tool at a good price. New to our offerings in 2023 is this Japanese triangular hoe. It is similar to a small trowel mounted at a 90 degree angle to the handle and is great for weeding, planting, and working through soils that have been prepared within the last couple of years in an established garden bed.
We especially like using tools like this Japanese garden hoe in raised beds all season, and in regular garden beds early in the season for digging and planting.
