DEWIT Round Eye Adze Hoe - ash handle 1300mm
The Oldest, Stoutest Form of Hoe
The oldest form of hoe has a blade with a slightly tapered collar one "eye" at its top. Traditionally the handle is made from an ash sapling, skinned smooth. The swelling at the base of the sapling is fit snugly into the tapered eye and held there by centrifugal force. Some common names for this tool are "eye hoe", "ox eye hoe", "peasant hoe" and, in the Southern United States, "scovil hoe"
Dating back to the early Romans, these hoe styles are primarily used as chopping tools for breaking up hard soil, grubbing out stubborn weeds and roots, and hilling up around vegetables.
This size is a great little hand tool especially for stubborn weeds, to dig that bit deeper to break up soil, to create furrows or any small picking work.
- Great for digging in soil with gravel or stones
- Making planting furrows
- Digging up potatoes and other root crops
- Small picking work
