Category: Old Gardening Tools
Tool Type: Chillington Hoe
Model No: 4514
The old Elwell Hoe 4514 has a head which is attached to the handle via
a tapered circular eye. The handle slides through the eye until wedged
firmly in place. The hoe head is set at right angles to the handle,
a design which allows the user to wield the tool with ease. The handle
can also easily be changed should the need arise.
The Elwell 4514 hoe is a very useful tool for gardening work such as digging, shaping soil and weeding to name a few uses.
The Elwell Chillington Hoe number 4514 is sometimes mistaken as a woodworking adze.
The term 'Chillington' comes from a style of gardening hoe related to firstly a type of tool with centuries of history and secondly the Chiilington tool company which was/is world famous for having a history of making Chillington hoes stretching back over 100 years to the late Victorian times.
Blade width: 4" - 4 1/4"
Handle length: 914mm (36")
