This package consists of a Japanese stainless steel gardener's trowel, root cutter and sickle.
Japanese Gardener's Root Cutter
Simple and effective, this small tool has a 70mm serrated blade. Hold it against the root to be severed and pull, that's it, job done. We are not sure if it can be used for harvesting asparagus, but that gives the principle of its operation. It has a wooden handle 140mm long and is a handy sized tool for dealing with a perennial problem.
Japanese Gardener's Sickle
This traditional tool is handy for all manner of tidying and trimming in the garden. The 160mm curved blade is finely serrated. In use the plant is held in one hand and the sickle drawn towards the user, making short work of even tough stems. This tool is fitted with a comfortable wooden handle; it is lightweight and versatile. 320mm overall length.
Stainless Steel Japanese Gardener's Trowel
This is a gem - a tough tool that is more than just a trowel. In Japan this tool is called Hori Hori, which translates as Dig Dig. It has a serrated edge one side and a bevelled edge on the other, and will perform such diverse tasks as loosening soil, digging, transplanting, dividing perennial plants, removing roots and tackling deep rooted weeds etc. The blade is stainless steel, specially heat treated for a long life, 40mm wide by 180mm long, slightly dished and fitted with a shaped wooden handle. The Hori Hori is supplied in a strong leatherette sheath with a belt loop. 295mm overall length.
