Description

The genius progeny of a trowel, knife and saw, the Hori Hori (rough literal translation: dig-dig, though it is called by many names) is one of the most versatile and useful gardening tools you've never used.

Given its bladed sides and silhouette, this tool generally falls into the category of being a "gardening knife", though this simple term doesn't do it justice. One side of the blade is sharpened and can be used for any outdoor task that would normally have you reaching for a knife - slicing small weeds, cutting twine and the odd bit of harvesting, for example.

However, the second side is heavily serrated and allows the knife to act as a saw when tougher roots are encountered. The point allows the gardener to loosen tough soils and clay.

As well as this, the Hori's 18.5cm blade is scalloped, giving it the shape of a trowel. This allows it to be used as an excavating tool while planting seedlings, and the dual centimetres/inches increments on it's reverse allow easy judgement of the depth of holes when planting seeds and seedlings, or for easy spacing of plants.

This lovely little tool has been made with longevity in mind, with a comfortable wooden handle and stainless steel blade. We recommend wiping down with a light oil or saw cleaner after use for maximum life. The edge can be honed with a whetstone or diamond file.

Dimensions:
Overall length: 32cm
Blade length: 18.5cm
Blade width: 4cm

Ships with vinyl sheath, including retention clip and belt loop.

Excellent tool

Bought on recommendation from a friend, I hadn't heard of these before. The quality is excellent, and if I'd known these existed I would have bought one years ago

Great for arthritic hands

This is an excellent tool for weeding and also for planting smaller plants. My wife has arthritis in her hands but can still use this because it is easy to hold, is very sharp, and long enough to provide leverage. Highly recommended.

Best ever

Great tool for digging, removing big weeds, getting plants out of pots where soil is welded to sides of pot. Just the best ever

Great All-Rounder

This is a fantastic piece of gardening kit. The knife side is very sharp and it is very well made.
