This ingenius garden tool has so many uses it's impossible to list them all. If you've never used a hori hori knife before, you'll wonder what you ever did without one. Reportedly created by gardeners in Japan (where "hori" means "dig", and "hori-hori" is the sound of digging), it's a garden tool enthusiastically adopted worldwide. The antiqued steel blade is smooth on one edge, serrated on the other, and has depth markings; the blade's four-point attachment to the handle won't wiggle loose. Solid, aged ash handle is comfortable in hand, making it great for planting seeds and bulbs. Leather hanging strap and full-grain cowhide protective sheath. Part of our exclusive Intervale Collection of classic tools with the timeless design and aged finish of cherished heirlooms.
