The best multi-tasking garden tool available today. With all the different shapes and sizes that garden hoes are available in, you’re never sure what type that you will need... whether it’s trenching furrows for seeds, or creating a hole for new plants, or if it is keeping the weeds under control around those emerging tender flowers and vegatables, or if it is mid/late season cultivating in those tight spots around mature plants, ... the Sickle Section Blade Hoe is the one hoe that can do all of those jobs! And the best part may be that it will most likely NEVER need sharpening!.. which means it will be a real time save. The sharp sickle blade edge can make easy work of cutting those tough weeds and grasses that can render a standard hoe useless. Not so with the Sickle Section Blade Hoe that can do the job with one swipe!.. what a standard hoe may take several hacks/whakes/strokes/stabs (whatever term) - another time saver!
Control - Accuracy - Time Saver
The Sickle Section Hoe is by far the handiest and most convenient hoe that I have ever owned. It has a standard sickle section blade welded on to the end of a Maple hoe handle curved rod. Anyone with a farm background, or understands a farming operation recognizes that heavy duty sickle section blades that are riveted onto a sickle bar that are installed into a agricultural mower or combine, operate and cut for thousands, and more likely, tens of thousands of "cuts" and will show very little wear, even after years of useage.
Most cheap hoes that are purchased at the more common discount outlets are made of light weight metal and they have not been sharpened, and furthermore, they will not stay sharp. Plus, they have probably been made in Mexico or China, or some other foreign country. If you are a gardener, then you know that a hoe must be sharp to perform at its best.
There are some sickleblade-type "knockoffs" on the market that are described as "triangle" blade hoe, but upon inspection, you most likely will find that they are made of the same inferior metal as standard garden hoes, and therefore are likely to need routine and regular sharpening in order to perform ideally.
The Sickle Section Blade that is the key element of our product is has been sharpened and hardened during the manufacturing stage. They are made of high grade steel that will not likely ever require sharpening. The small end point makes it very easy to hoe in delicate areas around flowers and vegetables, that are particularly delicate in the early stages of growth. But when a broader pattern is required, it is simply a matter of a slight rotation to take full advantage of the full sharpened length of the sickle section blade... on either side, making it more convenient and productive... get more hoeing done faster!
The handle is factory produced of hard Maple and has been sanded smooth and poly-coated to prevent splintering and wear due to weathering when the hoe is left in the garden and at the mercy of the weather environment.
Local checking at Orschlen, Menards, Tractor Supply, TruValu, etc. have not located a product that is even remotely close! More design and testing to be performed....
