I have been using hori-horis for decades and have bought several of this dfesign from Hardwick's for myself and as gifts for others. It's a fantastic tool for working in the garden and I wouldn't want to be without it.

Hori Hori garden tool

I purchased one for my daughter's birthday and one for myself. I can't give you a review until this spring when we use them. I can say I was very impressed with how soon my order was completed and sent.

My household has 5 of these purchased over 35 years. This one was purchased as a gift for a friend who raved about the one of ours she used while visiting. Hardwick thoughtfully shipped it for us.

  • This immensely handy garden tool is by far one of our most popular items, & an indispensable tool for the gardener! The word "hori hori" in Japanese means "diggy diggy", which is one of the many things this marvelous tool can perform! With this tool, special care goes into every small step of the extraction as not to damage the plants fragile roots, unlike the bulky & possibly destructive method of a standard shovel. The blade is slightly curved so it can be used as a trowel to dig & scoop soil. It's sharp blade can cut roots & weeds with ease. One can prune with them & deadhead plants with them too. The carbon steel on this model is tempered for heavy-duty use especially. It is really great for tough roots & small branches! The blade can be sharpened too when need be. Two stainless steel rivets securely & firmly attach the blade to the Beechwood handle. Includes protective black sheath with belt loop. This tool is sure to become your favorite gardening tool in the garden!

       Originally manufactured & designed for Japanese botanist specialists collecting mountain plants & specimens, such as "Sansai" on top of the mountains in Japan.
