Cobrahead Q & A:
Q: What makes the CobraHead a "precision" weeder?
A: The relatively narrow blade head and the pointed tip let the CobraHead work as though its blade were a steel fingernail. You can get right next to delicate plants and grab the weed and pull it out.
Q: Is the CobraHead effective on all weeds?
A: The CobraHead appears to be as close as you can get to a universal weeder. I find it's the best tool for grasses of all types. It does a great job on low-lying weeds such as purslane and spurge. It is great on dandelions and tap-rooted weeds. And because of its scalping ability even the weeds that can't be pulled out can be cut off quite deep underground.
Q: How do you "grab" weeds with the CobraHead?
A: If I push the blade into the ground just beyond the root and crown of the weed and pull the tool towards me, it pulls the whole weed loose. Usually I can pull out dandelions and deep rooted weeds in a single motion, with minimal disturbance to plants around the weed.
Q: What about cultivation? Why would I want to use a single bladed tool as a cultivator?
A: The unique blade shape of the CobraHead has proven itself for years as an extremely efficient soil-cutting tool. What it may lose in width covered with a single pass is more than offset by the ease with which it cuts soil. I find its ability to break up hard soil and pull up weed roots at the same time to be the best way to cultivate my beds.
Q: What else does the CobraHead do well?
A: I use it as a transplanter. I almost never use a trowel anymore. I use it as a seeder to either dig a small hole or make a furrow line. I use it to de-thatch very weedy areas that need to be cleaned up. I use it as an edger both in the garden and along walkways. I find new uses all the time. The CobraHead is the first tool I take with me when I go into the garden.
Q: What makes the CobraHead different from other tools that look almost the same?
A: There are lots of tools that have a similar blade head shape to CobraHead, but they are not the same. The CobraHead blade is thin and wears to knife-like edge. Other similar tools are flat and thicker along the cutting edge. This makes a huge difference in soil and weed cutting ability. The CobraHead cuts through all soils easily. What weeds it cannot pull out it chops off below the soil.
There are similar weeders that do have a sharp blade, such as New England Style weeders. These tools have a blade that is sharp on one edge only and can only be used for right hand weeding. The CobraHead can be used right-handed or left-handed, and it has many other uses besides weeding.
