It's called a scuffle hoe or stirrup hoe. I bought mine at my local garden center. Try a name search for online retailers.

5 Strategies for Keeping Weeds at BayPlan your control techniques to correspond with the seasonal life cycle of your weeds: seed germination or aggressive new growth, flower and seed production, or root development. To have a fighting chance in the war on weeds, you need to attack them repeatedly!1. Don’t let seedlings develop into plants. Weeds are much faster to get rid of when they’re tiny plants with tiny roots. Get out your hoe or hand cultivator and dislodge the seedlings from the soil. Once the roots are exposed to the air the plant will desiccate, die and decompose back into the soil. This strategy is especially useful for annual weeds but can be employed against young perennials as well.

Watch out for weeds. It's a sad fact that weeds seem to be the fastest-growing plants in the garden this time of year. Be sure to spend some time each week removing them before they set seed.
Annie Thornton added this to Southeast Gardener's April Checklist
Employ sustainable practices. A sharpened hoe is your best friend in a sustainable garden. Put your chemicals away and hoe your weeds. It's good exercise and better for the environment.Read more ways to naturally tackle weeds

2. Remove existing grass, plants and weeds. Starting out with a clean slate is important — you don't want to spend time and money on a new lawn if you're simply placing it on top of a weedy field. The way you remove this unwanted material is up to you, and largely depends on how large the area is and what kind of plant material you'll be removing. For small areas with old grass and weeds, a hoe will work well, but for larger areas consider renting a sod cutter (typically $70 per day). If you have large plants (shrubs, woody perennials), remove them first and decide if you want to replant them in another area or move them to your compost pile.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Gardening for the Bees, and Why It’s a Good Thing
Leave wild habitats. Lots of bees nest in the ground, so leave some bare spots. If the soil is especially loose — like sand or gravel — it may be even more appealing. Brush piles and holes in dead trees are all potential nest sites. It should go without saying that whenever you or neighbors are spraying pesticides and other chemicals, you’re hurting bees.
Abundant City added this to Natural Ways to Get Rid of Weeds in Your Garden
Get the roots. Be sure to remove the whole plant, especially if you’re removing full-size weeds. This is easier said than done, but it’s important because sneaky weeds can multiply from the broken ends of roots. When removing taproot weeds like dandelions and comfrey (which produce long central roots), be sure to dig deeply using a weeding tool or shovel. For weeds with fibrous roots, like buttercups, dig widely around the whole plant.
Lauren Dunec Design added this to How to Grow a Flower Garden for Bouquets
Prep your site. Once you’ve selected your planting bed, clear the area, removing weeds and transplanting existing plants if necessary. Using a shovel, turn over the soil and break up clods. Cover the bed with 2 to 4 inches of compost (and other organic amendments such as bone or kelp meal, if you wish) and turn over the soil. Rake the bed smooth.
Lauren Dunec Design added this to California Gardener’s August Checklist
Keep weeds at bay. Weeds follow water and will sprout up quickly in beds receiving regular irrigation. Use a scuffle hoe to get under mature vegetable plants and around sunflower stalks to knock back weeds before they take a foothold. Pay attention to plants before you hit them back. Some “weeds” can be useful, tasty or merely volunteer seedlings sprouting from garden plants that have cast seeds. Purslane (Portulaca oleracea), for example, is a common weed in California gardens but sold as a salad green in Mexico, South America and parts of Europe. The fleshy, slightly lemony-tasting plants are delicious dressed with olive oil and tossed in a salad or as an accompaniment to fish.Natural Ways to Get Rid of Weeds

Once soil is exposed, use your hands or a garden hoe to remove weeds that have been hiding under summer plants. Weeds that have not yet formed seeds can be composted; those that have set seed should be thrown away.Learn the natural ways to get rid of weeds

3. Prep the soil. Once you’ve chosen an area to start a wildflower garden, clear the soil of existing weeds and other vegetation. This can be done by hand with the help of a scuffle hoe or by soil solarization. To remove weeds using solarization, clear the majority of plants, rake the soil smooth and then cover the ground with plastic sheeting tacked down at the edges with rocks or landscape staples. After a few weeks, remove the plastic sheeting — all vegetation underneath should be dead and easy to remove.Find gardening tools in the Houzz Shop
