Article about our Pointed Hoe

Pointed or Ridging Hoe


"For really tough jobs such as breaking up soil for a new bed, Easy Digging offers a pointed or ridging hoe made by Bellotto that has a beefy, two-pound, eight inch, triangular, forged steel blade that digs through rocks and gravel as well as soil. It is also terrific for mounding soil around potatoes."

*excerpt from the article Selecting the Right Hoe by Rita Pelczaro in The American Gardener magazine.

Watch the videos below for a few minutes to see what you can do with your pointed hoe...


Video of Grub, Grape, and Pointed Hoes.   Nice demonstration of all three, and how they are used for different tasks. If you are in a hurry, the Grub Hoe info is at 25 seconds and at 1 minute 45 seconds (1:45), Grape Hoe at 0:48 and at 2:35, Pointed Hoe at 1:15 and at 3:30


Irish video with good tips for using a Ridging Hoe. He shows how to use it to hill up soil around root crop plants, and a good tip for cabbage plants. His tool is a little smaller and shorter than what we sell here in the US, but the technique is the same.

Customer Testimonials

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. Easy Digging shipped these pieces extremely quick and they were packaged properly. Overall an excellent experience from a quality supplier!
in Florida

If I only had ONE hand tool and had to depend upon it to grow food or starve, this azada is what I would want to have. I understand that this is exactly the situation in some 3rd world villages - this is all they have to feed themselves, and it works for them. Great product, thanks for making it available here in the US!

Forged Steel - How our tools are manufactured...


How our tools are forged from hot steel.   These video clips were filmed at the Bellotto factory in Brazil. They have been producing these tools since 1935. Bellotto has always been our supplier of Grub hoes, Grape hoes, and Pointed hoes.

Forging is the process of forming and shaping metals through the use of hammering, pressing or rolling. The process begins with a bar or slab of steel which is heated to its plastic deformation temperature, then hammered or "kneaded" between dies to the desired shape and size. Forging is one of the oldest known metalworking processes, traditionally performed by a blacksmith using a hammer and anvil.

During the hot forging process, the steel's coarse grain structure is broken up and replaced by finer grains. Mechanical properties are improved by aligning the grain flow to obtain the desired directional strength. Forging can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part.
