Can you identify this True Temper SW5 garden tool?

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Several members of my family have used these garden tools for twenty or more years. We always called in a "scruffle hoe" but I’ve since learned that’s incorrect. This particular hoe is shaped similar to a hockey stick, with the blade attaching to the handle at one end. The handle of the hoe owned by my mother reads "True Temper SW5."

I recently emailed True Temper after not finding the tool on their website. I took several pictures as they weren’t able to find any info using "SW5" and still they didn’t know. The rep that tried to help even checked with some of the so-called old-times of the company and they didn’t recognize it.

I’ve also brought printouts of the pictures I took of my mom’s True Temper to various hardware stores & gardening centers. No luck.

Last, I’ve used Yahoo to search several times for more info, using any of the info I have. Nothing.

The only place I’ve found it for sale is on eBay, and it’s a used item with no further description. You can see the listing & picture if you check the auction link below.

Please respond if you know the name of this hoe or where I could find that info. You’ll solve a family mystery! =)

    I have a nice size yard & i am always buying veggies & throwing them out just as quick b/c they don’t stay fresh in my fridge. I really want to start a small garden to grow my own veggies, but I don’t know where to begin & what tools I need? Can someone tell me what exactly do I need? Links would be helpful too. Thanks!!

        My koi fishes in indoor aquarium to be transferred in outdoor pond?

        Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

        I have 5 small koi fishes (3 & 4 cm. now) staying in my indoor aquarium with filters and aerator. My question is will they be affected much if I transfer them after six months in my currently being upgraded garden pond? The pond is at least a meter deep and 3x5meters wide with waterfall. I live in South Africa and we have mild weathers here. Thanks.

              How do I introduce an indoor cat to the outside world?

              Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

              I have a 3 year old cat, Milly. She has always been an indoor cat, but loves to be outside in the back garden (only for some air), every time we open the front door she tries to get out. So, were thinking of letting her be an outside cat, but we are unsure of what to do. I mean do we just throw her outside & she will come back when she is hungry, and what will she do when she needs to "go", will she know to do it outside? HELPPP!!

                Has anyone used rabbit manure in gardening?

                Friday, June 10th, 2011

                I have four indoor rabbits that produce lots of poop. Has anyone used rabbit manure before in gardening? They use a litter box full of wood stove pellets. Does that make any difference to plants?
                Anyone interested in buying some?
