The more you use it, the more you'll love it. Do a lot of gardening without bending over.
A note from Noel Valdes, creator of the CobraHead®
If you've heard the story of how I came up with the CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator design you know that there was some luck involved, but the end result has proven to be a very useful and well-liked tool. The same can be said for our CobraHead Long Handle. The long tool wasn't really on the drawing boards until we got numerous comments from mostly older gardeners asking us to "put that thing on a long handle."
So we did. While we had to make a lot of modifications to make a long tool that was a true improvement to similar hoes already out there, we know from the testimonials we've received for this tool, the results were worth the effort. Many older gardeners tell us that this tool has kept them in the garden where otherwise they'd have had to give it up.
Boyd E. Hudson III, Orange County, NC, says:
"I had bilateral knee replacements. Kneeling is something I just don't do any more...for anything, period. I needed that long handle CobraHead weeder. I not only had a great weeder, but one which was long enough to double as a walking staff to steady me as I maneuver through my garden. I can recommend the CobraHead Long Handle weeder without reservation. Strong, replaceable parts, it is truly a must have garden tool."
And we heard this from Patricia Czerwinski, New Lenox, IL:
"I had total hip replacement both hips this year. I can't get down on the ground anymore or bend way down. I kept looking and trying out different tools. I didn't find any that took out all weeds. This one does. I absolutely love it. I gave info on the CobraHead to my physical therapist for other patients. You may quote me. I would like to help others learn what a great garden tool it is!!!"
I'm 67 and still in pretty good shape, but I don't want to get down on my hands and knees more than I have to. The CobraHead Long Handle is, by far, my favorite tool for general weeding maintenance. Unlike wider flat bladed hoes, I can work in and around my tightly spaced plants, and I can work in uneven soil - it's great in my raised beds.
I'm not only gratified from the comments that we get from older gardeners regarding our Long Handle, the fact that so many of our customers are small scale growers - the little CSA farmers and farm market growers who are using hand tools to grow good food - makes me especially happy.
Give the long handle a try or give it as a gift to an older gardener. We guarantee they will be happy.
- The sharp blade cuts through hard soil.
- The unique blade shape and angle make it an extremely effective weeding device
- The single blade cuts hard soil more easily and with far less resistance than a wide hoe or a multi-tined tool.
- Excellent for weeding in tightly spaced crops such as onions, where most hoes are too wide to be safely effective.
- Extremely effective tool for scalping or cutting off weeds at ground level.
- Work around drip irrigation or other tight spaces.
**Note: The CobraHead® Long Handle blade is thin, sharp and strong. However, due to its thinness, it is not indestructible. It is not designed for pulling dandelions out of the lawn or for removing large plants and roots. **

Specifications & Features
|"The CobraHead Long Handle arrived... as you promised, I love it. I see what you meant about the handle's being special--this is a very well-engineered tool, a rarity in today's world--and should last for years, but by making the blade replaceable, you have provided for any future problem. Your Product Info and dissertation on gardening were superb. My favorite garden tool of recent years (an oscillating hoe) has just been retired. I could never understand why only one edge of that was sharpened. The CobraHead does a better job of "scalping" and so many other things in addition."

“I grow a lot of onions and carrots, which need constant weeding when they are young. My CobraHead is always the tool of choice because its sharp edges shave down weeds so efficiently. My garden is big and busy, but I have never lost a CobraHead because the curved neck can be hung on anything – a post, fence or even a tomato cage. I have a long-handled CobraHead, too, which I use in the garden for weeding and making shallow furrows. Confession: It makes a darn fine scraper in the chicken house, too. “

“ I’ve found CobraHead to be one of the most durable tools out in the landscape. Used for a wide range of purposes, our volunteers also find CobraHead to be the preferred tool of choice. The longevity of this well-constructed tool will be measured in decades and beyond which is not typical anymore! “
