I purchased a winkle weeded hoe about 15years ago whilst in Devon,it has been a real boon, but it is now broken, any ideas if they are still available?

I've never heard of a hoe called that - possibly a brand name?  As is often the case in gardening, local names for things vary massively!

Have a look at the links below to see if you can spot the type:

There are at least 50 types of hoe!  My favourite is a stirrup hoe.

Can you post a photo of the broken hoe? Could be easier to identify.
