Long handle patio path weed remover

REALLY random question for you out there.

My knees are not holding up to being able to be on all fours scraping weeds out of patio path.

I have the wilderness and wildlife back of my garden so all the seed blow over, which is hard enough to keep on top of on my lawn but my path slabs are awful.

I'd like a recommendation for long handled, tough and strong tool?

Thank you peeps

If you mean the ones with a wire brush and a spike at one end I bought a telescopic cheap and cheerful one from Amazon

Had it 4 years so it's had a real hammering and still no sign of the wire brushes wearing out.

Identical to this but a different make. There are loads out there starting at circa £7.

My husband has the same issues, we bought the heat wand, it was about £10, works with the gas canisters that work in camping stoves.

This made me think of a Corrie scene years back.
Norris was moaning about the weeds that grew up between the cobbles outside The Cabin.
Graham told him he knew exactly what he needed & sent him off to the DIY shop to ask for a crack hoe 😳😳 😂😂

Wolf-garten isn't the cheapest but the quality is great and there are so many different attachments it's really useful for all garden jobs
