This is a long shot. I believe I saw a video, from here, that showed a man demonstrating a gardening tool that was part hoe and a two or three pronged fork on the same tool handle. He was going to town on weeds in an overgrown field without disturbing the soil too much. I looked Paul's youtube channel and can't find it, so I may be out of line. Of course, I did NOT bookmark the site and having a hard time finding it again. If anyone has the name of the site, tool, or the url would you please forward?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thank you!

Shawn

Under the heading of lack of perseverance, I tried one more link and found it in another post on the site. it is the Magna Grecia Hoe.

Here is the link to the original post:

Sounds like your talking about a fire rake hoe. Also known as a mccloud hoe or McLeod hoe.

Hi Jordan,

No it was definitely the Magna Grecia. I have seen a McLeod in action though and it does a fine job, especially removing sod (or what passes for sod in CO).
