Austrian scythe

broadfork
hand trowels and weeder/cultivators including Japanese, Korean and other 
Asian versions
various eye hoes (Germany, Austria, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Central America)
English-style D-handled spades, spade forks and digging forks
long handled sharp and flat point shovels
seeding rakes (Dutch or German) of varying width and tine number and 
length and forged garden rakes
pitchfork, compost fork
manure fork or potato hoe (make an excellent one of these by bending the 
tines on a pitchfork, indispensible for removing cut weeds from garden beds)
