I have this old tool and unable to find it online anywhere, any help identifying it would be appreciated, thanks.

Don't ask me how I knew the name of it. Sometimes (not very often) I amaze myself. :ROFLMAO:
Close but not quite, I have used these before and they are quite different, primarily that my tool is longer in the hear and has a rounded back so you can scoop with it.

This is a hoe used by either Japanese or Chinese, it's specifically meant for hoeing through rows of crops. Not sure if they still make or even use them. More modern hoes are made of lighter materials so less back strain for the user.

This is incredibly light and was likely manufactured within the last 20 years

I know roughly the origin and what it is good for (I have used it extensively), It only weights a few Kg, far lighter than it's shovel counterpart, It is clear that this was produced in a batch and I would like to get more.

If I had more pictures of the head of the tool where it's mounted to the handle and some measurements, I could make one or I'm sure any machine shop could make them. It looks pretty simple but more pics would help.
