I am not merely satisfied with your Heart-Shaped Furrow Hoe, I am overjoyed. For 20 years, I was a backyard, raised-bed gardener. Now, after a 10-year break, I am at it again. But life and attitudes change. I am an 80-year-old (bullheaded) shrimp. I no longer listen to, ﾓYou donﾒt need that, justﾅﾔ Nor do I relish crawling across a bed to make furrows with fingers or a hand tool. The corner of a standard hoe creates a good drainage trench but not a neat furrow. I wanted a good furrowing hoe. Yours looked doubly impressive ﾖ it is SHARP. Indeed it is! It nicely beheads those weeds that form carpets while they are still too small to grab. The blade shape and angle make for versatility. I tested. By shifting the hoeﾒs position, I can use it to cultivate beneath long drooping leaves and branches, chop out dandelions and crab grass from the lawn, and weed around iris rhizomes. It also makes a fine furrow. ﾅAnd, it is lightweight and has a good handle length. This baby shall have regular cleaning and oiling. Next on my list is your Garden Tool Sharpener.

This works perfectly! The toughest prairie weeds are no match for it. Also, it's a great upper body/arm toner.
