It cuts and scrapes weeds, roots and vegetables. Ideal for cutting roots, transplanting, removing stubborn plants, sod cutting and dividing perennials. The protective sheath is ideal for protection while not in use but also protects you while you carry it around the garden.

What does Hori Hori mean?

The Hori Hori trowel is a versatile garden tool with origins in Japan where "hori" ホリ is the onomatopoeia for the sound of digging. This means "hori hori" would literally translate as "diggy diggy". It has many other names in Japan to reflect its versatility whether you use it for hard work or just for odd jobs in the garden. Elegant and sleek but also robust and versatile.

Made in Japan

Maruyoshi take great pride in the blades they craft and each is manufactured using SK-5 High Carbon Blade Steel for superior edge retention. The blade is tempered to provide long lasting durability so you can reap the benefits of this beautifully crafted trowel year after year. The blade is riveted to the traditional wooden handle for added security.

Unique Design

Most Hori Hori Knives are constructed of a steel blade and a wooden or plastic handle. The unique manufacturing methods used in crafting the Deluxe SK5 Carbon Steel Hori Hori blade makes it more durable than other knives. There is no seam between handle and blade for water or debris penetration and therefore will not degrade over the years as others may. Both blade and handle are toughened for hard use.
