Two Favorite Hand Tool
These are two of my favorite hand tools. The top one is a Japanese Hand Digging Hoe. I use it a lot for general weeding, and also for cutting out sod. The bottom one is a Japanese Digging Knife, also known as a "hori hori" knife. It's great for getting weeds out that are close to other plants that you don't want to pull out with the weed. Both are pretty sharp, which is one of the reasons I think they work so well.
