I went to an estate auction a month or so ago and there were some gardening tools that were to be sold as a bundle. There was one tool in there that I have never seen (it was very old) and I wanted it so badly, but I didn't need any of the other stuff, so I left it there. I was wondering if anyone might be familiar with this tool. It looked almost like a tiny pitch fork, had a handle about 12 inches long, would have been perfect for raking around small plants and in tight places between plants. I mean this was very small. I've looked at all the home gardening stores around and tried several different searches on the internet to see if I could find one or something similar and had no luck. I need a metal worker to make me one I guess. It was really cool. Anyone have any suggestions? This is not one of those adjustable rakes you see in the stores. This was so neat and tiny.

It was probably hand-crafted by a gardener many years ago. I remember seeing a really odd tool on tv once, and it turned out to be a man's hoe that was so worn down that it looked sort of like a sickle.

That sounds very familiar. I think I've seen one, but I don't know what you call them. If I find out I'll let you know.

Cool! The first picture, fourth implement down I had out in my barn, but it fell on my dirt floor and the handle rotted off. It looks like a skeletal hand now.
