Designed in collaboration with English rose breeder John Scarman to celebrate Sneeboer’s 100th anniversary, the innovative teeth of this hoe are shaped like a crown to honor the king of The Netherlands. This sharp toothed hoe is a unique tool in the gardener’s repertoire and is one of our favorites. The teeth increase the surface area of the blade by 35% and cut weeds just below the surface on the “push” stroke, while the hook on the reverse side of the blade eliminates weeds on the “pull” stroke. The Royal Dutch Hoe is designed for you to work and walk backwards, which leaves a fine tilth without footprints and reduces the chance of replanting weeds with your feet. The generous length of the solid ash handle allows you to slice through compacted soil with precision while standing comfortably, and the unique handgrip distributes pressure uniformly over the entire hand to prevent blistering. Each hoe is hand-forged in Holland from stainless steel with a sustainably harvested ash handle.
