Those are so awesome, never seen them before. What are they called?
I do not know but they look like they would make you do a Jekyll and Hyde personality shift in the garden! The weeds would be fearful! They would be useful for scratch in fert and amendments I think, with that rubber to keep your skin from any chemistry.

with as much gravel i weed in around here those would not work, but they are impressive, perhaps they'd scare the weeds into going away... :) i need to be able to pinch weeds to pick them up. i do wear a lot of fingertips off of the work gloves we use.

i actually use a wide bladed steak knife with a wooden handle for much of my close weeding around other plants. it isn't that sharp and i like that i can use it to skim quick or to dig out a particularly stubborn weed without having to change to another tool. if the soil is lighter and the weeds are mostly small i use a small mason trowel instead which has a sharp enough edge to often scrape the weeds and that is good enough.
