Hori Hori knife

Happy with all my purchases from Hardwick & Sons

Shipped quickly and was a great price. I have already referred two of my friends to Hardwick & Sons. This Hori works great and has a nice heavy feel to it, and I love the cover sleeve. I have had success digging, weeding and even "sawing" slightly woody stalks. Keep up the good work.

Perfect traditional hori hori

I bought this for my husband because he was envious of my own hori hori, which is exactly like this one. Mine is ALWAYS with me in the garden. The American versions are not the same. This heavy-duty tool will never bend or break.

Beautifully crafted, lovely balance!

I’ve got multiple soil knives but this puts them to shame. Beautiful hand-feel. Real heft and nice balance. Makes dividing gingers and Clivia a piece of cake! Cuts through the densest root systems with the tool doing much of the work for you. Great if you have carpal tunnel in your hands.

I love feeling like a warrior eliminating the damn dandelions in my garden and dividing perennials plants in the garden using the saw edge of the hori hori knife. Advise I can give to you - Buy it

  • 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.
