Effectively it is a dutch hoe and draw hoe combined: the forward action is like a dutch hoe and the return action is similar to that of a draw hoe. It allows the user to work back and forth along the rows of vegetables, keeping the weeds under control.

The head rests on the soil surface while working. The pivot allows the head to cut into the soil with both forwards and backwards movements, cutting the weeds below the soil surface. The flat sides protect the rows of plants to either side, and the square shape allows the gardener to dig out deeper-rooted weeds with the corners. The blade is bolted on so that it can be replaced when worn down.

PKS bronze tool heads are handmade of solid bronze (copper with a little bit of tin) by a smithy in Hungary. The handles are from European hardwoods: ash, beech and lime.

Although they may look like works of art, these are hardworking tools, designed for strength not looks. The tool heads carry a no-quibble, 25-year guarantee (excluding normal wear and tear) and the handles have a two-year guarantee. The advantages are: they don’t rust; they have sharp edges; they are hardwearing and will last for years; the metal is known to deter slugs and snails; they slice into the soil and come out clean.
