Hori Hori Garden Knife

- Hori Hori Garden Knife
- Leather Sheath
- Paper Knife (aka small box cutter)

o Full-tang blade with 3 rivets in the handle
o Serrated blade on one side, sharpened on the other
o Measurement tool (useful for planting bulbs)
o 7" blade
o 420 stainless steel (the same as many pocket knives)

I bought this to use in my garden as a replacement for a hand shovel. I have used quite a few hand shovels: some good and some bad. All of those hand shovels have broken at some point or another. Some have broken while using in clay soil and some have broken while trying to dig out rocks in the soil. Whatever the case, I researched various options and came up with the Hori Hori, because it fit my needs best.

The first thing you'll notice when picking up this Hori Hori is the heft, or how solidly it is built. If you break this garden knife, you are one strong individual! This thing is solid! It has a full tang blade (solid steel from tip to base). The serrated and sharpened blade edges come in handy for a variety of uses. I have used this "garden knife" to dig out and place mole traps in the yard, to plant annuals and perennials in both pots and near trees with roots, to cut items (bags of potting soil, twine, etc.), saw through saplings and roots, digging weeds, etc.

Clearly, if you are digging a hole to plant a tree, you will want a shovel. Likewise, if you are sawing a tree limb, you will want a hand saw or chainsaw. However, if you are doing light duty work in the garden with hand tools, this Hori Hori is extremely versatile! I highly recommend them if you want a tool that lasts!
