It features one straight edge and one serrated edge on the blade, perfect for cutting and slicing and also sawing and hacking.

This clever design means that with a simple twist of the wrist you can cut and lift out stubborn weeds or roots in your garden. The blade and the ergonomic handle are carefully balanced to reduce wrist fatigue. The blade's center is engraved with millimeter markings to help gage depths which is useful for a number of tasks in the garden such as bulb planting.

It cuts and scrapes weeds, roots and vegetables. Ideal for cutting roots, transplanting, removing stubborn plants, sod cutting and dividing perennials. The protective sheath keeps the blade clean and sharp while not in use but also protects you while you carry it around the garden. The sheath provides a means for convenient and safe transport while the blade handle has a notch for a hanging lanyard if required..

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.

Hardened Elastomer Handle

The ergonomic handle with hand guard is moulded from tough and durable Elastomer plastic. This means each handle is perfectly fitted to the blade for a snug fit. With the tight fit of handle and blade there is less chance of water or debris penetrating the seal and degrading the steel over the years. You can look forward to many years of use from your Deluxe Yamakatana Hori Hori blade.

"I bought this item to help me remove a lilac bush from an Ali baba shaped pot which it had been in for several years, I had to cut through the side roots to allow the plant to be removed from the narrow top of the pot. It was hard work but a great success and has been replanted and appears to be doing well. This knife was perfect for the job and will prove very useful for many other gardening jobs. Very happy to recommend this product."
