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!
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.
I bought a second one as a gift & they were thrilled! It's a sweet hand tool. + + + + +
-Weeding dry soil. Muddy soil will clog the blade and make the tool totally ineffective.
-Weeding and turning dirt between plants where traditional hoeing would be impractical.
-Chopping roots weeds when a soil knife isn't handy
-Not the best built quality. I can see the shank pulling out from the wood handle. It's just pressed in. Also, the blade is just welded to the shank. The welds on mine are very well done. However, with the blade being pulled on and flexing over years of use, I wouldn't be surprised if that broke as well.
For the price, I would buy again and again. I'm not concerned about the weak points the other reviewers and I have noted. If the handle pulls off, I'll fix it. If the weld breaks, I'll re-weld it.
