Tool or Gardening Product

Kana Hoe
I like this Japanese tool for specific, close-at-hand gardening tasks. It's like a small sickle, with a very sharp blade that pierces hard soil to weed and cultivate. Mine has a comfortable wooden handle. It measures 10 inches overall; the blade measures 4 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. Costs about $20.
