I am most willing to use just about any tool to get the job done. Quite a few years ago I found that a hand held crowbar was near perfect for pulling up weeds.
A crowbar has a wide surface for getting up under a weed and a sharp tip for getting the tool under the weed. A crowbar also has a longer shank for wedging under a good size weed and allowing you to lever the weed up out of the ground. by pressing down upon the bar.
The top tool in the image above, I almost never use. It might be better used when a weed is very close to some other plant you do not want to disturb. There are a lot of different crowbar sizes so choose carefully one that you think would work best for you.
