This one will work on the tough stuff with a deep tap root. Simply place the spiral tip next to the stalk and screw the spiral all the way into the dirt around the stalk. Then pull it out. End of story for the weed. Works best with moist soil. Note: this is not a delicate process, so it may be better to use another type of weeder when working on a manicured lawn, but it really does the job - period. The length is 22" long overall.
Effective use of this tool will be accomplished by centering the spiral over the root of the weed to be removed, with the tool perpendicular to the ground. Thread the tool rotating clockwise all the way in until the entire spiral is just below the surface. Pull the tool (with the weed) straight out. Try to keep the tool as perpendicular to the ground as you can. Do NOT bend the tool or try to pry or leverage the weed out. In hard, compacted soil or clay, it may be necessary to screw the spiral in and out a few times before attempting to extract the weed.
DeWit tools are a direct connection to the time when the best tools often came from the village blacksmith. Innovated and evolved from experience and made to last forever, a DeWit-made tool represents the closest possible connection between the tool maker and the tool user to be found in today’s global market. Willem de Wit opened his blacksmith shop in Kornhorn, a small village in northern Holland, in 1898. He did all the things a country village blacksmith did back then – he was a farrier, repaired kettles and sold bicycles. When his sons joined him the business grew, making tools for agriculture. A DeWit tool came to be known to combine good design, skilled craftsmanship and the very best materials, and soon their spades and hoes were in demand all over Holland. The 4th generation of the de Wit family today runs the company by the same principles and standards. Skilled hand forging may be augmented with modern techniques and equipment where appropriate, but the essential connection between the designer/maker and the user endures – only now the de Wits listen to gardeners and farmers from all over the world. And their continued insistence on only the best materials can be readily appreciated in the use of FSC-certified ash handles and Swedish boron steel – the same steel used on a popular brand of bulldozer blades!
