I wanted some gardening tools that were better quality than what I could find in the local big-box stores. I'm so glad I found Garden Tool Company!
My purchase of the DeWit Half Moon Pull Garden Hoe is quickly proving worth every penny! I only wish I'd gotten it sooner. This half moon hoe is a lovely piece that is well made. I have no doubt I will be gardening with this tool for years and years.
The DeWit Half Moon Pull Hoe allows me to clear wide areas of my garden quickly and easily. Even my husband has started helping out with the garden chores and looking new tools to add to our collection.
As far as using this particular tool: I am 5'1" tall and my husband is 6' tall. We are both able to use this tool comfortably and easily. I especially enjoy the fact that it is not heavy and remains easy to use even after an hour of working. Say goodbye to backbreaking work and hand pulling!!

I Read a rave review in a gardening magazine so ordered one. It is so versatile and ergonomically designed that I ordered 2 more as gifts for my daughters. I may have to order another one for myself as my husband "borrowed" it and has not returned it! It also does a great job of edging brick walks. Better than tools designed for that purpose.

The shape of the hoe makes weeding very precise, can get to all the weeds. The shape allows one to use the point to get deeper for those older weeks and the long edge is sharp enough and angled such that my garden can be cleaned up in the fraction of the time compared to any other method I have used. The hoes is simple and well made - I am planning to buy more Dewit Tools.

This halfmoon swan neck hoe was a gift to a family member. He has repeatedly told us how much he loves working with it. HE does not have the back pain he did after weeding his garden! He also likes the material the hoe is forged from. HE is thoroughly impressed with the quality of this product.

We already had one of these hoes and since we BOTH garden we had to "take turns" with this favored hoe...so...I got online and found it and ordered one for HIS Birthday and now we have HIS and HERS Half Moon Garden Hoes..this hoe is the BEST for getting between and under garden plants with the tiny little edges and then also the BEST for pulling along in between rows to cut off the weeds before they start..It holds a good edge and only has to be filed about once a season depending on how many rocks we are hitting:O)

As a teenager I worked on a produce farm for several summers and experienced several different types of tools while racking up countless hours of hoeing. This hoe design is the best by far and the one that I now choose for my personal garden. The skinny head shape allows for all types of de-weeding motions, from aggressive pushes and pulls away from the plant, all the way down to surgical tweaks near the plant. The long handle is ideal also.

I use this hoe daily to weed my vegetable garden. The blade angle reduces hoeing effort and the sharpness make short work of weeds and grass. A good all-round tool for eliminating weeds around your plants and for general hoeing chores in a tilled garden.

I purchases this hoe and the Sneeboer Pull Garden Hoe at the same time. The Dewit hoe is better for delicate weeding around plants and the Sneeboer hoe is better in heavy dirt. Together they make a great pair.

I needed something for precision weeding that could also easily clear a good swathe. This does the job. The neck makes it simple to get the blade into tight places. The sharp edge slips neatly below the root crown. The half moon shape improves visibility without sacrificing functionality.
