Looking for a scythe type weed cutter

Hi Folks,

Looking for a weed cutter with about a three foot handle, blade is similar to a grape knife. I've attached a link to a typical grape knife.

I know they make or used to make these, had one once in fact. They're very useful for getting the individual weeds that get away from you and are back amongst a row of veggies or against a foundation and you don't feel like burning up a lot of trimmer string. Might have to just buy a grape knife and put a long handle on it.

Any ideas?



Here is a link that might be useful: typical grape knife

I've found it works best for me to get the ground wet and pull it up. That way it can't grow back.
