TESCO Long Handled Weed Knife

I had to do some shopping today and now that Easter is over and the last of the Easter Eggs are being sold off at less than half price the seasonal gardening stuff is hitting the shelfs again on the seasonal aisle, and I just had to treat myself to a couple of Long Handled Weed Knifes one for the allotment and the other for home.

At £3 each they didn't break the bank, and the weed knife is one of my favorite hand tools to use, and as I have problems getting down on my knees at the moment is a sensible purchase. 

You twist the top and the inner tube is telescopic and extends making the tool extend from 690mm to 1000mm or 1m.

Care Instructions - Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly before storing.     


  1. I bought one today and cannot open it to extend it. I was planning ti sort out my front path this afternoon but Ive given up

  2. If you place the blade into a crack or joint between paving slabs or bricks it holds that end and then you can rotate the handle end to unlock the mechanism that allows you to extend and retract the two bits. Do the reverse to lock the joint gain once you have it the length or height you want it at.

  3. I bought one yesterday and had the same problem. Thanks to your tip..I managed to unlock it! Thank you so much!

  4. Had same problem did what cadalot said and hey pesto it worked thank you cadalot ­čśŐ

  5. Cant believe I was pulling the damn thing rather than twisting it !! All done and ready to use! Yay
