    • The oldest form of hoe has many names: grub hoe, chopping hoe, peasant hoe, eye hoe, azada…but you’ll appreciate it for how useful it is.

      Primarily used with a swinging motion, this long handled hoe is good for chopping out medium to large weeds, especially in pathways and along bed edges.

      It is also used for breaking clods in new ground, removing sod, mixing amendments and moving soil, as you would when hilling potatoes.  Good trench-digger, too.

      This type of hoe is seen in the hands of peasants and farmers all over the world.
