We like to call this Japanese Hori-hori knife the ultimate garden tool. From digging and planting to cutting, weeding and beyond, its uses in the garden are endless, thanks to its durable construction and portable size. Sometimes referred to as a soil knife or weeding knife, the Hori-hori's blade is sharp on both sides -- heavily serrated on one while smooth on the other -- coming to a semi-sharp point at the tip.
This Hori-hori knife, made in Japan, includes a durable faux-leather sheath that clips to your waist for easy access. The blade is constructed of high-quality carbon steel, and the solid wood handle is ergonomically shaped and sanded smooth for comfortable use.
Hori-hori measures 11.5" from end to end.
Digging and weeding knife
I got this as a gift, and the recipient loved it. Everyone else at our Christmas exchange was jealous. It's beautifully made, has a nice weight, and should prove endlessly useful.
