This Japenese weeder has become the essential weeder for gardeners. Strong but lightweight. Remarkably easy to use as a weeder in flower beds. It has become many gardeners indispensable tool. The blade is made from hardened steel. The wood handle has a plastic cap that includes a hanging loop so that the tool can be easily stored. This tool is made in Japan and as result is top quality. Overal ithe tools weighs less than 6 ozs. Thsi is the best weeder anywhere

Unfortunately it didn't last. I got it around 6 months ago and already it is broken. Some other reviews mention it breaking as well, and the weak spot seams to be where the blade is welded to the handle. It just isn't strong enough to hold up to the prying motion you need to use to get weeds up.
I don't necessarily think that it is just a case of myself and others getting one with a bad weld, as the metal bent some before it finally broke, so I think it just isn't strong enough for what it is meant to do for the long term. Might be okay for someone that is just pulling weeds out of a vegetable garden or something, but it can't handle dandelions and crab grass without breaking.
I gave this item a 3 star rating because it didn't last long BUT was an awesome weeder before it broke. I have since returned to Amazon and replaced it with KNK-MT211 ARS Weeding Sickle - Nejiri Kama which a solid shank (with bend). Hopefully this new one will last longer.
Hoe #1 is $24 (and change) and lasts two years, then needs an $8 adjustment. Hoe #2 costs $10. Even if it lasts just one year before an adjustment is needed, it's still no worse than the first. So...no major difference.
As mentioned, this tool is quite similar to the ones I previously purchased. The sharp blade makes easy work of pulling out weeds and unwelcomed plants. The wooden handle is hefty enough to prevent hand fatigue. By far my most used and beloved garden tool.
Edited to add that the last three I've bought aren't nearly so durable; the handle or head comes off after 6 months of use. Sad.
I bought a second one as a gift & they were thrilled! It's a sweet hand tool. + + + + +
Tip - make yourself a blade cover for this hoe - it's sharp. You can easily make a blade guard out of a section of garden hose with a lengthwise cut. We made one from a 6" section of foam water pipe insulation and it works nicely!
