Tool or Gardening Product

Warren Hoe
A Warren hoe is shaped like an arrow. It is invaluable for cultivating, weeding cracks in concrete, and weeding among bedding plants or in tight spaces. The handle is long, and the arrow-shaped blade is set at a 45 degree angle to the handle, mounted in a sturdy steel shank. They sell for about $30.
