Hand-Forged Cape Cod Garden Weeder
Made in USA - Oregon
Heirloom Cape Cod Weeder Hammered By a Smith
The Cape Cod designed weeder is a unique tool which is used to tackle weeds by slicing under their roots in a garden and reaching into narrow spaces such as cracks and sidewalks. It cuts in both a forward and backward stroke similar to a scuffle hoe.
The sharp point is for hooking weeds and yanking them out. This is really helpful to avoid hitting the roots of flowers that are close to the weeds. There is nothing better for cutting out grass and weeks between cracks. This is the only style weeder that has the multi function for slicing and hooking.
This particular one is special. It is hammered by a 70 year-old master blacksmith in Oregon. Each one is painstakingly forged individually from saw steel so they acquire their own look from the hammer of the Smith. The shape and design of the weeder has been refined for decades to become what gardeners really need - an extension of your hand.
The steel head thicker than others on the market to provide extra strength and better performance. It also has a longer shank and shorter handle than other designs for better cutting.
The handle is made from hickory wood which has been beautifully varnished. With continued use the handle will pick up the oils from your hand to maintain a nice sheen. The square shank is attached to the handle with a twist technique to keep it attached for life.
This 9 ounce dirt cutting powerhouse is best for those who are right-hand and average strength. It will be the tool you pass down to the next generation to continue the joy of gardening and respect for nature.
