What Customers say about our Grape Hoe

"This tool cut my extensive weeding time by at least 2/3rds! Its traditional and timeless design make weeding a relatively pleasant task. The design of the hoe optimizes slicing weed roots about a 1 to 2 inches below the surface. As always, maintaining a sharp cutting edge really makes mincemeat of those stubborn weeds even in compacted soil. Wish I had known of this particular hoe many years ago! Thoroughly recommend and their products!"

"Easy Digging shipped my tools right away and the 2 hoes I got (Grub and Grape) are the most amazing garden tools I have ever owned."

Tim, in CA   4.5 star rating

"I purchased both the wide grape hoe and 6" chopping hoe. I have to say that it is the most effective hoe I have ever used. Keep it sharp and it will cut through anything in the garden. I no longer dread weeding, as if I miss a couple of days it is no harder to chop. I have sliced through weeds up to 6 feet tall, clump grasses, wet, or dry. This hoe is unstoppable!"

Daniel, from MO   5 star rating

"I have purchased the 8" grape grubbing hoe and the 6" digging hoe. Both are excellent tools for their task. My personal favorite is the 8 inch tool, weeding the garden is so easy with this tool. Looks are deceiving, one would think that the size of the tool would be awkward, but it is not, it is so well balanced and easy to use, it will be my tool of choice for years to come! "

Using a Grape Hoe

See our detailed article: How to use a Grape Hoe

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.

Thick weeds, and even small woody plants, can be cut with a forceful chop of the grape hoe blade - this a very strong tool.

● quickly weed large areas and paths
● cultivate in preparation for planting
● clear thick weeds and undergrowth
● pull sand, soil, or fine stone from a truck

Forging Process:

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 a ancient metalworking process that was done by a blacksmith pounding metal on an anvil with a hammer..

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.
