Love this tool!
By Grammy Jude
Never had heard of this product before (and neither has anyone I have asked). Ordered one for myself and have found it invaluable, particularly for uprooting deeply rooted weeds. Have been enthusing to one and all about this and ordered as Xmas pres for my siblings.

It is a excellent knife for weeding and digging. By accident I threw the one I had for many years away. I checked a few stores in the area for another one No luck they either did not have one or the quality was not good. I called Gardener Supply to order a few items and a very nice and helpful man suggested the Bare Bones Hori Hori knife to me I took him up on it and it is just super very good quality and a wonderful tool .I really like this Company and will continue to buy supplies from them . I have always been pleased with the service and all items that I have bought from them are of great quality. Keep up the good work!! Thanks again
A nice, heavy garden tool
from Newport, Oregon
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.

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

Bought a second one so we don't have to share! Great garden tool!
my favorite tool

Love this knife so much, I bought a second one. This knife can be used to weed, dig, help to lift stepping stones and just a great all around tool
like it, but
from sedona, AZ
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.
