Tom, I used to use one of those wheel-hoes/wheel plows cultivating my iris in Idaho.  We had a set of various tools including weeding knives, cultivator hooks and both cultivator shoes that made a ditch and a shoe that was a tiny moldboard plow.  The handles were longer than the one in your picture and curved down.  I'd give a lot to have one of those now.  It probably wouldn't work nearly so well in our red clay, though, as it did in Idaho "blow sand" loess.  The blades and tools were always shiny from the loess and clean enough to eat with.
Thanks for posting that.  What warm memories it brings back--and I do mean "warm."  I've spent a lot of 95-100 degree days out running that thing.
