    Or perhaps an enchantment to make hoes hit from the side. Which causes such knockback and could also get around shiled blocking frome the right angles. Naturally it wouldn't deal much damage but it would create another shield counter other than cleaving. It would show the hoe being swung sideways as well, alternating sides each swing or by left and right clicking. To counter it in pvp you would instead need to block from the side the hoe swings at you on, instead of directly in front of you.

    Maybe the direction they get knocked could depend on where you hit them (compared to you), so if you hit the side of them that is to your Right, they get knocked to your Left, and vice versa.

    Another idea: It could yoink items out of the player's hands?

    And increase the base damage by 1, from 1-2.

    this will make them actually useful and would be great for combat!

    I agree with the idea, but perhaps it could only be unlocked when knockback is placed on a hoe.

    However, I feel like this would feel out of place unless hoes were given an enchant to increase damage, or maybe a stacking damage mechanic that makes it practical as a weapon.
