In Detail

Forget all those flimsy, bendy western garden trowels and get yourself a traditional Japanese farmers' Hori Hori. These are probably the most useful gardening tools we’ve found. This example is stainless steel, specially heat treated for a long life. The polished blade has graduations in both metric and imperial to help when planting bulbs etc. Serrated on one edge, with a simple bevel on the other, it will loosen soil, dig, transplant and divide perennials, remove roots and tackle deep rooted weeds etc. Dandelions beware. The blade is 40mm wide by 180mm long and slightly dished, fitted with a wooden handle. The Hori Hori is supplied in a strong leatherette sheath with a belt loop, 315mm overall length. N.B. By purchasing any knife, you are confirming that you are AGED 18 or over.

Fantastic tool!

My wife is a little demon with this! It tackles the most hardened of soil, none of that trowel bending or hopelessly scratching the surface, a real working tool. She has it on her belt like a gardening Lara Croft! A real multi-purpose tool, certainly not a gimmick like so many gadgets, it just does the job!

A Superb Trowel

I received this item a couple of weeks ago and it's been great. The serrated edge whilst not particularly sharp is really useful for hacking through stubborn roots whilst you are digging. It's a shame that the tang doesn't extend the full length of the handle because the blade is so strong it really encourages you to get a lot of leverage when you are digging, this could be a weakness. Having one of these really makes short work of a lot of gardening jobs, transplanting and dividing mature plants etc. This should last for many years and will certainly outlast those cheap bendy garden trowels! I work as a handyman so regularly dig out post holes for fencing / decking etc. This tool has been really useful levering out burried hardcore, hacking through roots etc. Being narrow it's also really useful for digging out deep rooted plants growing up through rocks where you wouldn't be able to use a conventional trowel. Buy one today, or buy two and give one to the gardeners in your life!

Never far away

I bought 2 of the original steel versions and was very impressed with how versatile and strong they are. The stainless is even better. Expensive, but good tools often are.

Japanese. Gardening trowel

A fearsome looking piece of kit that is actually one of the best small gardening tools I have ever had. Tough, versatile and gives strength to my arthritic hands.

Where have you been all my life

Had been looking at these for a while and had seen some black carbon steel ones but the serrated blade didnt look sharp enough. Not these. The serrated blade will become your new best friend. As well as being brilliant for hooking weeds out you can use it as a kind of sickle in long tough grass, will slice through brambles like a machete and I've been using it for the lawn edges using the straight blade. You probably could bend it if pushed but the proper blade edge and full length serration make it in my opinion a better choice than the carbon steel one. Brilliant tool, buy one for the gardener in your life and they will thank you forever.
