These hoes are collaborations between Werner and Andreas Glaser in
Switzerland, Eliot Coleman, Tim Davis at Johnny's, and myself.  The
Trapezoid, Collinear, and Stirrup hoes are presently discounted 20-30% on the

Glaser wheel hoe:

Trapezoid hoe (this is the 6.5-inch -- my fave is the 5-inch):

Collinear hoe -- also avail. "standard," which some prefer:

Stirrup hoe -- 3 sizes = 3.25, 5.0, and 7.0-inch:

Coming in the new catalog:
Long-Handled Wire weeder
