I bought the groundhog because i am always in search of a better weeder.This is not it. Either the handle is too big or the end is too small.the fist time I used it I bent the forks, telling me it wasn't tempered right.

great for kudzu, easy on the hands wrote

I have arthritis and I found this to be a well-balanced and very useful tool. The ax works well on kudzu roots, although it has to be sharpened frequently. I am ordering a cultivator as well. Well made, good grip on handle. Rapidly becoming my favorite hand tool.
