Smith and Hawkin triangle weeding tool

Edwardsville, IL(Zone 6a)

Several years ago I got the best weeding tool from Smith and Hawkin. It was short handled and the "working" end was in the shape of a triangle about 3" wide and 2" deep. . I did everything with it and now they don't have them anymore. I would be thrilled to find one in someone's shed that they never or don't use. Does anyone know about this tool?

Was it something along these lines? This one is long handled but I'm pretty sure I've seen short handled ones too.

the foxfire hosta co-op(not up yet) always offers their weeding tool-suppose to be a good one too!

Is this what you're looking for? I have one of these and really like it.

perhaps this?

My sister gave me a left-handed Japanese weeder and it is the best tool I have ever had. It is about 17inches long and has a triangle of metal on the business end.

Has anyone used the Longnecker weeder or trowel? It looks pretty good to me, thinking about getting the trowel.

jgrinter---I have one, but I could never never part with it. I use it for practically everything
in the garden. I am horrified now that they no longer make them, that I might misplace it. Been known to put down my tools and walk off, then forget about them for awhile. Not a good thing to do to your tools. And, that one is a very special tool indeed.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Davis1676 I have checked out these Longnecker tools and I agree they look good. I think I'm going to give them a try. I know, beebonnet, i'm still stunned, paint yours vibrant orange so you can find it. Losing it would be very sad!

Actually, my DH is in the process of drying it out and painting it red, because I did leave it out in the rain--again. (turning red myself) and I got a good lecture.

I just got my Longnecker in the mail, can't wait to use her!

Which one did you get? Please give us a report on it.

I got the cultivator & it looks like it'll work pretty good but haven't had a chance to test it out yet. I'll post back here when I do!

I have one and I love it. Best close in weeding tool (besides one's hands) around. Sorry, you can't have it.

FoxGloves carries them too. hmm... I think the URL is
and it's in their tool section. Left- and right-handed versions.

Sharon, thank you, this is the one I have been searching for. Way more than I paid for mine years ago, but I am glad you shared this link with me.

You're welcome! I've been eying that tool for a year. Seems most people here who have had them really like them.

At least one of the links looked like a reseller for Pro Hoe at a considerable markup.

Check out the scuffle hoes and if you want something a little more beefier te garden hoes.

Also, I havent tried this company but their tools look excellent.

Sneeboer garden tools and DeWit tools make something like what you are describing.
