This text describe the different types of tools sold in a garden centre.

'Càvec' or 'cavic' is a type of hoe - I think it might be known as a 'triangular hoe' for use in vineyards but am not sure of the correct English term. Here is one definition I found:

Càvec/ cave
azadón/ rastrillo para las tierras
houe triangulaire
-Eina semblant a l'aixada, però de fulla més estreta, que s'eixampla una mica a la part posterior.


Does anyone know what this is in English - as opposed to 'aixada'? Otherwise, I may just say they sell 'different types of hoes'.


Many thanks in advance!
