I have a confession – I am madly in love with my CobraHead. It has quickly become one of the very few tools I use in the garden because it is wonderfully multi-purpose.
You can see why I love the tool in the short video above. It is amazingly like an extension of my hand and is the sharpest tool I have. Without a doubt, it’s simply perfect for digging out tap roots and getting in between cracks in the flagstone.
CobraHead’s claim to fame is as “The Best Tool In Earth” and I have to agree – winner of the best tool in my garden hands down. It even made Joe Gardener’s 2009 “Best of the Must-Have’s List”. One of the nifty things about the CobraHead is that it is relatively “green” – the handle is made from recycled polypropylene mixed with flax fiber. Here you see a photo of my eight year old daughter using the CobraHead to plant Nasturtium seeds – it is really easy to grip and she likes planting with it. Below is a photo of me using the tool to get around a difficult and prickly cactus I have in my back garden.
While at the Garden Bloggers Conference in downtown Chicago this Spring, I got exceptionally lucky and won the long handled version of the CobraHead as well. This only minutes after having said, “I love my CobraHead and want a bigger one!”
Walking the late-night streets of Chicago carrying the long handled CobraHead, I can say I felt rather safe. My blogger friends claimed I looked particularly like the grim-reaper. Personally, I think I looked like Little Bo-Peep. At any rate, it was an interesting evening and produced my newest favorite garden tool. Wahoo!
