Our 2-1/8˝ Gardening Pick & Hoe is a traditional tool used by Japanese gardeners. It is individually forged and heat treated by a master blacksmith from stainless steel to eliminate rusting and corrosion. Unlike Western hoes, the blade is designed with a slightly curved surface so that the it cuts from the center to the outside of the blade. This improves the cutting effect and helps prevent damage to adjacent foliage. The pick end will rapidly break up hard soils. Both ends are installed angled to the handle to reduce fatigue during use. The handle is made from hard wood. The blade end is 2-1/8˝ wide x 3˝ long, and the pick end is 3-3/4˝ long. Overall length is 14˝.
