This tool was a replacement for a tool from a different manufacturer. I lost it and searched online for a new one. Works like the old one and handle fits my hand well. I can pry up stones without bending the shaft and blade stays sharp enough to cut through weed roots.

A splash of bright color somewhere on the handle might make it easier to find when it drops in the garden.

Can't Garden Without It

wrote ():

This Cape Cod weeder is always in my hand or nearby when I'm in the garden. It's the handiest tool ever, and this version is the best one still being made. I keep a few on hand to give to gardening friends. The only downside is that there is no version made for left-handed gardeners. Otherwise, I'd say this tool is tops.

Favorite garden tool!!!!!

wrote ():

I got my first Cape Cod Weeder probably 37 years ago. I have gardened all my life. It has been my favorite garden tool all that time. I am still using it and it works just the same as when I first got it! I was weeding the other day and got to thinking ....omg, what would I do without it! That is when I ordered another one for me and two more for special people.

A must-have tool

wrote ():

I became a devotee of the Cape Cod weeder some years ago and don't know how I ever lived without one. The Leonard version has a beautiful wooden, easy-to-grip handle with a blade that serves as a handheld mini-hoe. The tip is more pointed than some, which helps with digging out roots. The only improvement I would make would be to make the blade a little longer, allowing the gardener to cover more surface area with the blade.

Leonard Cape Cod Weeder (short handle)

wrote ():

for the money it is a good Cape Cod Weeder. the handle design with the bump at the back is nice. steel seems hard enough. the edge needed a bit of fine tuning. pulls out weeds well by the roots and does not cut the root but removes most of the root.

Excellent gardening tool

wrote ():

I love EVERYTHING about this tool. It is the perfect size and of the highest quality. Not only is it a weeder, I also use it as a tiller and even for digging holes when planting bulbs. Of all my garden tools, the Leonard Cape Cod Weeder is my favorite. I had purchased a similar tool about 20 years ago and accidentally tossed it out with a bucket of weeds. I was thrilled when I found this exact tool at A.M. Leonard's. They processed my order quickly and I received my weeder within just a few days! I love this tool, and am an extremely happy A.M. Leonard customer!!

Just what I needed

wrote ():

Planned on using on narrow rows like onions but it is very versital any place there are weeds or soil needs loosening. Appears to be very sturdy and well but time and use will tell.

Works great

wrote ():

Save so much time. When the weeds are big loosens the roots and they come right out. when the are small cuts them clean.

Greatest Weeding Tool

wrote ():

I have owned one of these for about 20 years. I lost it recently and tried some old methods (screw drivers,spading fork, etc) It didn't take long to realize that the Cape Cod Weeder works the best. It is perfect for removing weeds, especially crab grass and dandelions, and will last a lifetime if you don't leave it in the weeding bucket and send it off to be mulched!

Decent steel, excellent ergonomics, quality wood, kills weeds of a variety of shapes/sizes. Or as the Brits say : " Does what it says on the Tin !".

One of My Main Gardening Tools

wrote ():

I use this tool almost as much as my pruners and feel almost handicapped without it. They are really tough and I've never had one bend on me. It works great for weeding gravel walks and drives although gravel does wear down the metal after a few years. I use it not only for weeds but for loosening the soil or to plant smaller plants. One valuable tip: wrap bright electrical tape around the handle to make it easy to spot,- you don't want to loose it!

Leonard Cape Cod Weeder

wrote ():

I received the same style weeder from my sister as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. I've gardened for 40 years and this is my favorite tool. It is great to get the small weeds next to vegetable garden plants and flowers. I purchased 3 of these from A.M Leonard as gifts for my daughter and two sisters. This weeder from A.M. Leonard is a better value and are very well made.

Absolutely the best

wrote ():

Over the years I've owned several versions of this weeder, and this one is absolutely the best. The quality of its materials, its proportions and balance, and its comfort in the hand make it a reliable companion in the garden -- one that shares the most disagreeable of chores. Even the stony soils of Vermont are slow to deplete its blade.

Get One!

This is the most useful hand-tool I have. I can't imagine gardening without it. My husband calls it Captain Hook. I've been using these for three decades in the garden, and give them as gifts to other gardeners. Superb.

Best weeding tool for me

wrote ():

This is the best hand weeding tool that I've used. I have found that preference for weeding tools varies widely from person to person, but this is the style of weeding tool that works best for me. It takes the place of several tools all in one, from fine touch to aggressive root pulling. I have bought one for each of my family to have for their own.

Great Weeder

wrote ():

This weeder is stronger than me. Unlike the Japanese weeder that broke after repeatedly bending out of shape, the neck on this tool doesn't budge. I have pried and pulled as hard as I can without problem. A few passes with a bastard file keeps the edge sharp and slicing through the weed roots. I can dig out the the deeper roots with no problem.

a small tweak makes this good tool great

wrote ():

As a landscaper, we employ a lot of different guys who all seem to have thier favorite bed weeding tool for spring clean ups. The Cape Cod Weeder is the the most popular choice and the half dozen we have get a lot of use. Within about 3 weeks of buying the first batch the blade pulled out of the handle. In Columbus we have very heavy clay soil and the use we gave these tools might better be described as abuse. Jackie, our super-sales-girl at AM Leonard, quickly sent out replacements (they are always great to deal with) but my guys destroyed those tools as well. So if you run into this problem there is a super easy fix. On a drill press make a small hole through the metal collar, the wooden handle and the steel shank of the blade, then drop a short cotter pin in the hole, and BAM!! your one minute of work provides a tool that lasts through more than two years of daily use and abuse.

Best All-Round Garden Tool

wrote ():

As a master gardener, I've tried many types of hand tools. The cape cod weeder is the best all-round garden tool ever. I not only 'weed' with it, but dig holes to plant transplants, lift paving stones, cultivate mulch, make straight rows for seeds, and scrape out the bottom of the lawn mower. A Felco hand prunner and a cape cod weeder is all you need for daily garden chores!

The Absolute Best Gardening Tool

wrote ():

Honestly, I lost my Cape Cod Weeder last year, and just shudder to go into my garden without it. It works like an extension to your arm. We have wire grass in the yard, and it obviously gets into the garden. This is the best tool for the job! Also, as I'm going around the beds, I can edge with this puppy too! It's sharp, angled perfectly, and very easy to manipulate. I've used it for years in professional beds - it can help lever edging rocks as well. My kids love this tool too (which is why it's gone missing!). I've ordered three so I always have one available for myself, and two for the kids as it makes gardening fun for them vs a chore.

Almost the only tool you need

wrote ():

The design of the Leonard Cape Cod Weeder is a stroke of genius. I actually live on Cape Cod (the name had nothing to do with my purchase)and we have very sandy soil. I use it for every cultivating need I have. I've even used it to pull chunks of weeds, grass from edged areas. This purchase was to replace a well loved and used product that I had for over 23 years. It didn't wear out, I lost the original one as I believe it went for a ride on the trunk of my car and slipped off. Lucky person that found it!

A solid tool!

wrote ():

This is the type of tool that I use all the time for getting out difficult to reach weed roots, etc., The long handle and slender design are ideal for this purpose; it is well made and attractive (which never hurts) but most importantly, it gets the job done!

My Go To Hand Weeder

I love this tool. It's lightweight, fits my hand well and is great for close weeding and tight spaces. It also works well for weeding between pavers and sidewalk cracks.

Best tool ever!

wrote ():

I purchased the A.M. Leonard Soil Knife years ago and I thought that was the best tool I'd ever used, that is until I received my A.M. Leonard Cape Cod Weeder. I've been eradicating a particularly invasive weed from my yard and this tool has been amazing! The roots grow close to the soil surface and all i have to do is scrape the top layer and the roots are gone! I'm so glad I made this purchase. If you're hesitating - DON'T! BUY IT NOW!
