Tools: The Weed Bandit

I am a firm believer that every job is easier and the outcome is more successful if using the correct tool.
Before Weeding

This tool's success is dependent on the soil type: it is ideal for sandy/loamy soils.  It's metal loop slices through the roots of each weed with ease. 
My advise if you have clay soil -  don't waste your time - this tool is useless for clay.

After Weeding

This tool is especially good for weeding around seedlings; you are able to get very close to the seedling without disturbing the tender roots.  As you can see in the picture above I have just started weeding using this tool.  In the second picture I have finished weeding, making the parsnip seedlings visible.
