SHW 5.5″ Grub Hoe

$18.00$53.00

The oldest form of hoe has many names: grub hoe, chopping hoe, peasant hoe, eye hoe, azada…but you’ll appreciate it for how useful it is.

Primarily used with a swinging motion, this long handled hoe is good for chopping out medium to large weeds, especially in pathways and along bed edges.

It is also used for breaking clods in new ground, removing sod, mixing amendments and moving soil, as you would when hilling potatoes.   Good trench-digger, too.

This type of hoe is seen in the hands of peasants and farmers all over the world.

Important Note:  To save on shipping costs, this tool ships disassembled.  Installation is easy and we’re happy to walk you through it.

SHW 5.5″ Grub Hoe

This grub hoe from SHW is lighter than other chopping hoes I’ve used, but equally strong.

The head is forged carbon steel, with a slightly concave cutting edge making for easier digging.

The handle is oval shaped, like you would find on an axe or other striking tool, which is more comfortable than a standard round handle.

The handle is also wider near the head for added durability, and the head is fitted to the handle with a single wood wedge.   We include a metal wedge should the tool head loosen over time.

  • Head is 5.5″ x 7.5″
  • Overall length 54″
  • Weighs 3.3 lbs
  • Oval Handle
  • Concave Cutting Edge

Hand Forged by SHW in Germany

Important Note:  To save on shipping costs, this tool ships disassembled.  Installation is easy and we’re happy to walk you through it.
