My question is how to choose a right handle for this tool.

They are very easy to make.  The site where you buy them has step-by-step instructions here:

I make a lot- some would say Too much- use of a small pick, sharpened.  It does a good job, but I'll bet the Fokin hoe would be even better !

Pamela, I agree, I know the Fokin hoe would be so much better. It is such a versatile tool. I have been wanting this tool but have not got around to ordering since I was in the process of moving. I had a scythe but it does not work well even when sharpened plus this being sharpened on all sides makes it so versatile. To have a tool that has so many uses instead of one tool for one thing would be awesome especially right now with limited space to store tools.

I have known Yuri for a long time and watched him build his business. He only sells quality. Even though I am currently not on my homestead it would make quick and easy work here in town for my yard and garden especially since I do a no till garden and prefer to use this instead of mowing.

For those who have not seen this wonderful tool in action here is a 1 min video.

Your parcel with set of 2 flat-cutters is on the way. I sent you an email with track number.
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
