Get into tight spots between plants
A single tine cultivator, the best tool for weeding or loosening soil in tight spaces between plants, is called a Finger Hoe. Our hoe has its question mark shaped head forged from low carbon steel. It's tough. We start with a half-inch round rod that is then shaped in the forge so the lozenge-shaped tip of the tine is a bit thicker, and longer lasting, than similar tools.
The Finger Hoe is useful for more than tillage. We know a nurseryman who uses them to maneuver one gallon plants around the enclosed bed of his pickup truck. Itâ€™s also a great tool to drag brush after a long day of pruning.
There are two ordering options as there is only one head size for this tool:
- Choose a handle length based on your height, 18â€ for raised bed gardening, or order the solid socket head with no handle.
- Choose style of connection: forged solid socket (riveted) or tang-and-ferrule (riveted)
The size, shape, and weight of a long handled tool means we must charge an additional $15 shipping fee per tool to our flat rate shipping rate to accommodate for the actual cost of shipping it. Tools that are both long and wide can be quite expensive to ship.
