"Asymmetrical flat hoe shape with elongated tang ending in a small loop. This hoe is a commonly recognized form among a number of different people of northern Nigeria into Cameroon and as far as Chad . The hoe also serves as currency for its absolute value as iron and its functional application as a hoe where the tang would be hafted onto a short wooden handle. Known as "Bandaka" in some regions."
