Re: 'tis The Season for Banker's Bonus, Tralalalala

Re: Looking for a top-notch digging hoe

these are ubiquitous here in greece where they are called tsapas.i have inherited several of various sizes. however they are all in poor shape and i want to sharpen and replace handles. i'd appreciate any tips on how to go about this. or would it be better just to buy new ones?
