Japanese Ika Hoe
A strong, solid, hand-forged Japanese Hoe on one side.
Flip it over and its a heavy duty cultivator.
Great strength and balance. Oak handle.
3” x 9.5” head. 15.5” overall.
(Shaped like a squid, thus the Japanese name ika).
Good quality materials and well made. It tears through hard, rocky soil without problem. It was a great purchase.
While I did not buy mine here, I purchased this hand held hoe ten years ago; I've used and abused it, had to fix, sharpen and refurbish it but... I cannot live without this hoe! For in the bed weeding, seed planting, trench digging, soil breaking and cultivating, this one will do all that and more! If you take good care of the hoe, it will serve you for a long long time. I'm so happy to see this hoe here because when mine will no longer be resuscitated or gets lost in the garden, I know I can get one here. You need this hoe!
