Traditional Japanese Hori-Hori
The Hori-Hori is your new favourite garden tool! Get ready for a different garden experience.
The humble trowel has taken a backseat in recent years to its sharper competitor, the Hori-Hori or Japanese soil knife. The Hori-Hori is a versatile and multi-purpose tool with a strong stainless steel blade, with scabbard, and a smooth wooden handle. The heavy-duty blade is razor sharp and is serrated for cutting through roots and tough soil and can be used as a knife, a saw, a digging tool, as a measuring device for planting bulbs and for splitting perennials. It is so strong, the Hori-Hori can also serve as a small hand axe. The stainless steel means it is lightweight so less stress on your wrist, the blade has a smooth surface that slices through even compacted clay soil with ease, and it will never rust even if you mistreat it. The blade itself has a handy little ruler stamped on one side so you can plant bulbs at the right depth, and both the straight and the serrated blade edges are easy to sharpen as needed.
This tool will do everything, a one-stop tool for your permaculture garden.
With care, your Hori-Hori will last a lifetime.
