My husband asked why I had the commando knife on the kitchen table when he saw the Hori Hori. I realized I should have ordered it with its sheath; did so immediately as I have an inquisitive 3 1/2 yr old grandson 'helping' me with my gardening. Actually he is a good helper; I loosen soil and he digs the hole. He is very happy to keep on emptying it for as long as necessary! I have used the knife for cutting unwanted plants out of the garden, including dandelion, cutting through weed barrier and removing old plants from pots and mixing new soil into them.
Best gardening tool I have!
from Lebanon, oregon
This had become my go-to tool in the yard. It is excellent for weeding my garden beds, planting bulbs, cutting twine and much more. It is very sturdy and sharp. Since I just got this item I'm not sure how well it will do after a year of intensive use but so far so good. I would recommend buying it with the sheath. Currently I use it with the garden pocket belt but due to the sharpness of the knife I don't want to cause damage to the pockets in the long term. Easy to handle, a great buy!

Could not garden without it. Bought a second one as a gift and a third in case I misplace my own.

The Hori Hori is perfect for digging in my horrible rocky clay soil.
I had one and lost it.

I have used one just like it.
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
