This is a great tool but a bit awkward for us lefties (hint: we are 12% of the weeder market). Mine has lasted for many years. It is great for weeding up close up and personal to the new starts.
This is by far the best hand held garden tool that I have. Every gardener should have one! It is so diverse you may not need additional garden small tools. I always order 3 and give them as gifts to my gardening friends. They all rave about it.
Bought one of these this year, hadn't seen this particular product before in over 40 years of gardening. Don't know how I was able to keep up with the weeds without it (I now have 2). The only drawback I see is that there doesn't appear to be a left-handed model. One of those would allow the gardener to use both hands at the same time. Very good product!!
Our garden maintenance company uses the Handy Weeder constantly. I have shared it with garden club friends who marvel at the ease with which it clears a weedy patch in minutes. A must for professional and home gardeners.
I bouught this weeder because I've relied on this particular weeder for over the past ten years. I use it both at home in my extensive gardens, and also in my landscaping work for clients. I never leave home without one, if not two, of the weeders because my gardening partner often sneaks off with my weeder! My last order was for six: three for me, and three for her.
