Long Handled weeder

I am looking for a tool to remove weeds from between the bricks of my backyard patio.
The bricks have spaces between them about that of what a sidewalk would have, maybe a little wider, but there is no filler (just dirt) to prevent weeds from coming up.

I don't want to use chemicals.
I have been using a hand garden "scratcher", but want something with a long pole so I don't have to be bending down so much.

I've got a dandelion digger that I sometimes use; It's got a long handle, and a blade that if I turn sideways will get between the bricks. It does reasonably well, but I was thinking of something more like the garden scratcher, but with tines closer together and maybe a double set, offset with one set behind the other.

Maybe I could design something myself, but I am fairly certain that there is a tool available that is what I am looking for. I just don't know where to look.

Any ideas?
