That weeder looks good but I have my doubt on it.
It might work for small yellow dandelion but for bigger weed, I would assume it would break off at root.
Two of my neighbor brought similar tool maybe Fiskar long handle tool. I think they used it for one season then forgot about it. I was also hearing they left big hole in lawn.
Canadian Tire website reviews (some negative). They say it hard to extract and says roots breaks off too

It was on sale too but I didn't buy it.
I looked at Grandpa Weeder on youtube. But don't know how good it is? Looks Sturdy
I brought V neck small hand tool $10 Canadian tire from Yardworks. Another hand tool I brought form Yardworks L shaped knife $10 to cut growth between slabs and patio. I am going to try the Screwdriver technique on the weeds too after rainfall.
Currently I am not fond of long hand tools for Weeds. Maybe I will change my mind later.
