I was making a mallet earlier this week and my neighbour asked if I could make him a handle for a tool. I stupidly forgot what he called it.



Any ideas? It’s going to be a challenge to fix a handle as it looks like some of the metal work has rusted away.

More importantly can I earn a BB or two!

Rust Removal

What if I drilled some holes and made a pin style handle?

Cheers

Is it some type of hoe?  Maybe a grub hoe?  It certainly looks bigger than a big box hoe but a grub hoe, though similarly sized, is usually forged, not stamped, and has a flat blade.

Just a thought

I also found the terms “warren hoe”, “bon hoe” and triangular hoe.  

But this assumes this is some type of pointed hoe.

Again, just a thought

worn out scarifier tip, which is bolted onto the tynes of farming cultivation equipment.
It would have tapered to a point one time.
