A handful of weeders exist that are designed to extract the entire root with the weed, but this cork screw weeder made in Holland by DeWit has got to be one of the strangest.
To use the weeder, you screw the corkscrew into the soil around the weed and pull up to remove the entire weed, root and all. Dewit manufactures two different versions of the weeder; one measures 22″ long and weighs 15oz, the other extends 40″ and weighs 2-1/2lbs. Both weeders feature a wooden T-handle.
You’ll shell out $44 to have the 22″ long corks crew weeder shipped to your door. You’ll pay a little extra for the pleasure of standing — the longer 40″ weeder runs $65 shipped.
