Ammann & Rogue Hoes

The Swiss manufacturer Ammann AG offers high quality gardening tools in some specific unique styles. Specializing in hoes with replaceable hardened steel blades, the most popular types being the Colinear, Upright (trapezoidal), and Oscillating (stirrup) hoes. Another Swiss manufacturer that professional gardeners are familiar with is Glasser (carried by Johnny’s); we feel that the Ammann tools are as good a quality while at a more competitive price. In late 2009, we have also expanded our offering of Ammann tools, carrying some of their other unique tool designs. Ash handles for most of the long handled Ammann tools are produced for us by one of our customers in Tennessee.


403 - Ammann Colinear Hoe w/Replaceable Blade

Made famous by Elliot Coleman, this “razor blade on the end of a stick” is great for shaving small weeds off at or just below the surface. Extremely light. This model has a replaceable blade. Replaceable Ash handle.

Ammann Oscillating / Stirrup Hoes

Also known as a “hula-hoe”, these hoes have a hardened spring-steel blade that cuts in both directions for high efficiency. Unlike a fixed-blade ‘scuffle’ hoe, this head has a limited-swivel joint at the top which gives the blade an aggressive entry angle into the soil both pushing and pulling, without changing the angle of the handle. Therefore, it works the soil deeper than a scuffle hoe (like our Dewit Diamond Hoe), but by the same token it requires more energy to use. Replaceable Ash handles.

Ammann Dibber (or Dibble)


Used to poke holes in the soil for quick planting of small starts or bulbs, or seeds. The first time I saw this T-handled dibber, I thought the handle was on crooked. Upon using it, I realized that the slightly “crooked” handle is more ergonomically correct for less wrist fatigue. However, some folks prefer a dibber without T-grip handle, so we now carry it this way as well.

  • Length: 11”
  • Width: 5” or 1.5”
  • Weight: 0.3 lbs

With T-grip: Buy $9.00

Without T-grip: Buy $8.00


Made in Kanas from recycled agricultural disc blades, The Rogue hoe line has some good designs, are priced well (no overseas freight involved!) and are the best domestic hoes we’ve found. Handles on Garden and Scuffle hoes are attached in the conventional crimped-ferrule style (not replaceable), but the oversized ferrules seem to make the head junction more durable than any other American hoe. All hoes sharpened on 3 sides. (these hoes are good for seasonal hired help: better than average quality for good efficiency, but not a huge investment in cases where they might “walk off” or get lost).
