A brush hook (also called a bush hook, ditch blade, ditch bank blade, or ditch blade axe) is a gardening instrument resembling an axe, generally with a 12-inch (30 cm) to 16-inch (41 cm) curved blade and a 36-inch (91 cm) to 48-inch (120 cm) handle. It is commonly used by surveying crews and firefighters to clear out heavy undergrowth from trails, as well as by homeowners and gardeners to clear thick brush.
