The handle is turned from bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource, and provides a sturdy grip. The metal pommel on the end can be used to pound in stakes. An attractive blackened finish gives the tool a vintage feel. The protective sheath is made from durable polyester nylon with a tough reinforced lining, leather accents and a stainless steel belt clip. The open end lets loose soil filter out.

One solid tool
from Hermiston, Oregon
I expect to get years of service out of this tool. This is a well built, hefty piece of equipment and Gardeners.com had an unexpectedly reasonable price. Perfect for a surprise birthday gift.
Multi purpose tool encourages new gardeners
from Kensington, Md.
New gardeners can get frustrated with too many tools. This hand tool can cut, weed, make furrows and with its own pouch, will always be handy.

I've wanted one of these for a while. Sharp, sturdy and versatile. A real game-changer that does the job of several sharp tools. Already can't live without it.
This may be the Greatest Gardening Tool EVER invented!
from Clinton Twp, MI
I bought one of these for myself, and it is truly IS the Greatest Gardening Tool EVER invented!My two neighbors, who are also avid gardeners, were so impressed with it that I went and bought one for each of them. It has one slight design flaw. The blade wants to rotate on the handle when digging and twisting in our heavy clay soils. But, I re-Engineered it to solve that problem.

This knife is high quality to the degree that even my hunting and fishing crazy husband loved it When working in the yard or garden sometimes you need a knife to get the job done. This one does that and is beautiful too! I love it so much that I would give it as a gift. Very nice.
I liked it so much I bought two.
I have recommended this tool to many other gardeners.

Great duo. Would buy again.
By Lisa at Greenbow
Very handy. Use it daily.
Great gift for a gardener
Haven't gotten a chance to use this yet, but got this for my boyfriend for Christmas and he LOVED it. He initially thought I got him a dagger of some sort so there was a bit of explaining to do. Got it based on the great reviews it has on the site and it looks great in person, well crafted. Hope it works as well as everyone says!
Attractive and strong
Good looking hori hori. Hasn't been outdoor tested yet as the ground is frozen but it looks up for the job. The bottle opener does work though:). The shape of the blade makes it have a little less digging surface then some hori horis but I don't think enough to make to much of a difference.
