The April 2016 Issue of Kitchen Garden Magazine performed a product test on a range of Hoes and gave the Carbon Steel Draw Hoe with Ash Handle (stock no. 14310) a rating of 5/5.
We’re all probably very familiar with the Dutch hoe, but what other kinds of hoe are there on the market? This month the KG team put several of them to the test… Weeds be worried, be very worried.
Carbon Steel Draw Hoe With Ash Handle
Stock Number: 14310
This hoe is 126cm (50in) long with an ash handle that has a clear lacquered finish. The head is 19cm (71/2in long). The pressed steel blade is 15cm (6in) long and has an epoxy coated finish.
This is a sturdy hoe which enables an effective draw action, digging into the soil and taking out the weeds in its path to a good depth. I liked the lacquered finish on the handle too.
