The Bob hand hoe came about when a CSA farmer (named Bob) brought us an old but favorite weeder. He said he couldn’t find a replacement for his prized weeder, so we asked Jaap Sneeboer if they could make one (or many)...and this hoe is what Jaap came up with.
Handmade in Holland.
This hand hoe has a blade that is sharpened on all sides, so it cuts weeds on the push and pull stroke and the notches front and back keep the weeds from sliding off to the side before they are cut. Like all Sneeboer tools, this hand hoe is handmade of the finest stainless steel and is fitted with an Ash hardwood handle that was harvested from FSC Certified forests.
Bob hand hoe size:
Length: 18 ½ inches
Blade Width: 3 ¾ inches
Approx. Weight: 8 oz.
Anyone who has ever had a Sneeboer tool in their hand will never want to use anything else.
…this is so true! Pictures just don’t do these tools justice. The combination of weight, length, shape of head, strength and balance make Sneeboer garden tools like no other. For over a century, every single tool is individually handmade of the highest quality stainless steel by the artisans at Sneeboer - true works of art.
