We go through about one garden hoe per year while gardening and landscaping around our home. When we saw these beefy tools made from recycled agricultural disc blades, we thought they'd cost a fortune. Surprisingly, while they're more expensive than your typical garden hoe, they're priced so that had we picked one of these up three years ago, it would have paid for itself.
Each Rogue Hoe is handcrafted in Kansas from recycled agricultural disc blades. First, the discs are cut to size and then ground to an edge. The welding and sharpening are also all done by hand. Rogue claims that the recycled agricultural discs are not only environmentally friendly, but that it's the best tempered steel for the job.
Add the quality steel blade to a solid 1 3/8" thick solid ash or fiberglass handle, and you've got a nearly indestructible tool for your garden. They come in a variety of blade shapes and designs. Check them out at Rogue Hoe or visit your local specialty garden store where they might be in stock.
