I was able to make short work of the weeds that had taken over. It does an excellent job in our clay soil.

Excellent. Cuts and works the soil beautifully. I have always used a Warren hoe, but could not find a new one made for any kind of heavy duty garden use. Only complaint is the 51 inch handle is a little short for my 6'2" height and my 63 year old body. Short one is wonderful for when you get close to the ground and serious.

My wife continually breaks hoes; she isn't that strong, but our soil is mostly clay and rock. The Chelsea Eye Hoe from DeWitt looks like the space shuttle could crash on it and not even scratch it. We are also planning on getting another for my mother-in-law. Unfortunately, with winter here in PA, obviously we have not had a chance to use it, and while we are waiting for warmth, I am busily rubbing in boiled linseed oil to the wooden handle. The design is such where the handle is slid user-end through the eye, and the bottom (working) end of the handle is wider so the hoe head will not be able to come off--similar to an axe head. The blade has an integral "eye" cast into its one SUBSTANTIAL piece, hence the name "eye hoe." I can guarantee anybody who purchases this how will NEVER need to get another one!
