I like the design of this hoe. I had a memory that it might be called a skiffle hoe, but I probably made that up. "Scuffle hoe" actually returns search results using Google. In any case, it does a far better job at weeding than a standard hoe due to the way the angle of the blade glides in the top layer of soil as opposed to digging down into it.
Alternative designs like a "hula
hoe" aren't the right tool for me based on prior experience.
