Okay, now that I have appeased the internet police by sharing my disclaimer, on to my review of the CobraHead weeding and cultivating tool!
Let me say right out that I am not a fan of weeding tools. Moist earth, a sturdy pair of gardening gloves and my own two hands are usually what I use for weeding. And weeding I do – plenty of weeding.
Behold: your humble blogger, in all my weeding glory:
That picture is really quite typical of my weeding attire. A bucket to hold the weeds and a pair of sturdy gloves is enough…on most days.
But then you get the occasional weed from hell. You know the one I’m talking about. The one with the outrageous tap root that seems to extend all the way to China, or the one with thorns an inch long that rips right through your gloves. Yes, those weeds.
That’s when I realized how useful the CobraHead weeding tool can be.
Review of the CobraHead Weeding Tool
The CobraHead weeder and cultivator is a lightweight yet very sturdy gardening tool. It is made in the U.S.A., in Wisconsin, from recycled materials. The handle is made of recycled plastic, and the blade is tempered steel. The point comes with a plastic guard to avoid accidents. According to the company’s website, it is 13 inches long and weight just a little over 9 ounces. I liked the feel of it in my hand and found it didn’t fatigue my hands, wrists or arms during use.
The CobraHead weeder and cultivator felt very easy to use. It was lightweight enough so that my hand and arm didn’t get tired, and the pointy tip really came in handy to dig down into the hard clay in my garden and get to the stem and roots. I also used the curved side to pull back some mulch when we were looking for a hole in the foundation of the house to run the new television antenna wire through into the basement. My husband grabbed it and used it to dig a shallow trench, and it dug into the hard, dusty packed clay near the foundation of the house with ease. It didn’t bend, ding or scratch.
After use, I wiped it clean and used the handy jute string already thoughtfully placed on the handle to hang it on my tool rack in the garage. The bright blue handle made it easy to find in the garden. I’m always misplacing my gardening tools, and it’s easy to lose them among the plants, but not the CobraHead.
I really liked this tool and am thankful the company contacted me to review it. For more information on the CobraHead weeding and cultivating tool, visit the company’s site.
I’m giving this tool 5 out of 5 starts! Love it!
