Easiest way to find it though is to just change your layout to Essentials Classic. It will then be nested in there under the eraser tool.

I thought i was going mad, your answer helped. Why did adobe decide to remove this from the workspace? What tool does Adobe want us to use to do the same operation in the new workspace?

The tool was not removed, just hidden from the toolbar. If you need to use it, use a different workspace or create your own toolbar.
