Since 1935, Bellotto of Brazil has been making these forged steel eye hoe heads. They have been optimized for their intended tasks. Their grubbing hoe heads are angled for fast efficient digging and tilling, while the grape hoe head shown here is set at a more shallow angle for easy weeding and cultivating. The long Ash handles are made in the USA.
Our large metal wedge is included with every head or handle purchased.

I ordered one each of the tools you carry. They met or exceeded my expectations. I have many garden tools, so I have something to compare
them to. The 8" grape hoe cuts my soil like it was butter. It's rare to have hoes come with such nice edges. I found the fork hoe was
particularly good in dealing with spreading weeds like quack grass. The digging hoes were excellent as well.

The tools are as advertised. I ordered both the 6 and 8 azada to replace a 50 year old zappa or saupa (Italian for hoe) that was handed
down thru our family. They are very well built and the handle/collar design is superior. Easydigging shipped these pieces extremely quick
and they were packaged properly. Overall an excellent experience from a quality supplier!

Weeding with an eye hoe is done by keeping the blade parallel to the ground and pulling the tool towards you in short strokes with the blade just under the surface of the soil. Coarse weeds, and even small woody plants, can be cut with a forceful chop of the grape hoe blade - this a very strong tool.
The Italian grape hoe is best known as the fastest way to weed large areas, but it is also a great tool for moving loose soil. Check out this fun little time-lapse video to see just how fast you can move soil with your weeding tool.
