A nice, heavy garden tool

By CB

from Newport, Oregon

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Barebones™ Hori Hori Knife:

The handle is well shaped for my hand, the blade is heavy enough so that I don't fear it being bent or broken and the serrated edge is great for hacking climbing vines and small branches. It's terrific.

Be very very careful. .

By Mary E.

Comments about : Barebones™ Hori Hori Knife:

This is one sharp tool, but that's what makes it so handy. I can open bags of soil, use the hammer built into the handle to break up old pots to use for drainage. Scoop dirt into pots, use the jagged edge of the tool to score the peat pots of what I'm planting, use the tool to help align said plant in pot and scoop more (if needed) soil to finish the job. That means my various "garden" scissors and knives can now enjoy a deserved retirement and I don't need to keep track of a hand trowel. Cuts twine, edges sidewalks and maintains its edge nicely. Just be careful to not run your thumb along ANY edge on your hori hori to test for sharpness. Take my word for it....it's sharp

      Comments about : Barebones™ Hori Hori Knife:

      Am using this tool pretty much every day in the garden, so why don't I love it? because its not "enough". Planting small seedlings? Perfect hole. Dig up the yarrow? well, it loosed the dirt around it, got under it a bit, but couldn't cut through the root ball so I couldn't split the plant. At one point, it felt like the blade was coming loose from the handle. I think its a full tang, but the wood part is not one piece that means it can separate as it gets older. So, you'll find yourself reaching for it all the time, but too often wishing it was just a little bit more.

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • All Around Household Uses

          Comments about : Barebones™ Hori Hori Knife:

          I previously had a Japanese gardening knife purchased at GSC 20 years ago, and it was my most favored tool. Got divorced, moved and realized that it was purloined by my ex- Instead of sneaking to his house, searching for it and possibly stabbing him with it, I figured it would be safer to just purchase a new one. I am so glad I did! I got a better version of my Japanese gardening knife - and it kept me from incarceration:)
          PS. They make great housewarming gifts!

          One cool tool

          By Bobby & Carol

          from Chickasha, OK

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about : Barebones™ Hori Hori Knife:

          This tool is ideal for grooming the gardens. It helps to dig our weeds by the roots and it has a handy little saw on one side that is great for cutting out thick vines and branches. The handle butt can also be used as a hammer. It is also made with stout enough material that it ought to last a long time. I liked it so much that I also bought one for my brother. Cool.
