Our best precision tool makes weed control fast, easy, and enjoyable. Eliot Coleman’s finest work is a complete departure from traditional designs. the user stands straight, using a thumbs-up grip, while a sharp, thin blade rides flat and collinear with the soil surface, slicing off weeds without throwing soil onto nearby seedlings. Ergonomic design makes weeding surprisingly enjoyable. Especially effective in and around low-lying crops such as head lettuce. Swiss galvanized steel head; oiled Maine ashwood handle. 5 1/2′ overall.
