Bookertoo - Yes, I purchased an onion hoe and it is brilliant but on a short handle it is hard work.  I am still looking Big Ed and hope I come across something like you have.  Thanks for letting me know, as what I want is obviously out there.

iGrow - the Haxnicks hoes looks very efficient but still a bit too wide for me, but thanks for mentioning it.

I got a very tiny hoe from a car boot sale; in fact I've had several good buys from the same stall holder over the years. But my hoe is not angled, though it does work well.

Big Ed - I was out with my friends tonight and mentioned your message and they think that Home Sense is the same as tkmax so I will try them on Thursday to see if they have any narrow hoes in stock - thanks for mentioning it again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Big Ed.

Success - Home Sense (same as tkmax) had one in stock and I have bought it at only £6.99 (it says on the label RRP £19.99).  The handle is a wee bitty short but that can be rectified. Can't wait now to try it out. 

I can't thank you enough I am so pleased.  Such lovely helpful folks on this forum.

Bumped up as other people were looking too.

For anyone who is handy, an angle grinder fitted with a metal cutting disc means you can tailor a larger one to your exact needs.  Just throwing that in as an alternative.
