A round tuit

There are lots of tuits around

I'd finally got around to it - hoe-skimming weeds off the gravel path I mean.

As I feebly prodded with an old push-hoe, I mused about other "tuits" : the hop tuit, the jump tuit, the string tuit, the way tuit, the more tuit and so on ad lib.

Then I suddenly saw in my mind's eye, a "better" hoe, a round hoe, a loop-hoe, of knife-edged flexible carton cutting steel, useful stuff that.

The 100mm loop would bolt strongly to the handle and in use would combine the functions of pull-hoe and minirake.

Its name? The TUIT of course. I'll make a prototype right now, I day-dreamed.

       Baked. My dad had one of these when I was ten. It was actually a rounded trapezoid at the end of the handle. It worked way better than regular hoes. With a regular hoe you had to chop chop chop. With the open trapezoid hoe you could just chop into the soil once and then drag it along.

       <metrically challenged/> I'm not sure if I get the idea. Do I picture this thingy like placing a bandsaw blade into a length of PVC pipe?

       Reensure About 4 inches in diameter. Yes. Something like that. And thanks GlobalT - I thought it would work well.
