A pick axe is a hand tool with a hard head attached perpendicular to the handle. The pointed edge is most often used to break up rocky surfaces or other hard surfaces such as concrete or hardened dried earth. The large momentum of a heavy pick axe on a small contact area makes it very effective for this purpose.

A mattock is similar to a pickaxe, and is used for digging and chopping. These are very versatile hand-planting tools. They can be used to chop into the ground with the adze and pull the soil towards the user, opening a slit to plant into, and are particularly useful where there is a thick layer of matted sod. They have a long handle and a stout head, which combine an axe blade and an adze (our grubbing mattock) or a pick and an adze (our English cross clay mattock):


• The head of our English cross clay mattocks combine a pick and an adze. It is one of the best tools for grubbing in hard soils and rocky terrain. The adze of this mattock is useful for digging or hoeing, especially in hard soil.
• The head of the grubbing mattock combines an axe with an adze. It has two flat blades facing away from each other, with one rotated 90° relative to the other. The blades are generally used for cutting through roots. These mattocks are useful for removing secure objects from the ground.

The hardwood pick axe handles we stock fit into the oval eye in the head, and are secured by striking the head end of the handle against a solid surface, such as a tree stump, a rock or firm ground. A similar action, while holding the head, allows the handle to be removed.
