Hori Hori knives are multi-functional landscaping knives with curved blades originating from Japan. Traditionally used for foraging Sansai (vegetables growing in the wild) in the mountains, the Hori Hori blade has become an indispensable gardening tool around the globe.

The Traditional Hori Hori Gardening trowel with Straight Edge Blade from Maruyoshi arrives complete with a sheath for protection. It features two straight edge blades much like a dagger, perfect for cutting and slicing. The blade is curved and features an ergonomically crafted wooden handle. 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 hardwood 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 has an integrated belt loop for convenient and safe transport while the blade handle has a hanging lanyard for ease of storage.

Can be used for digging, sawing, chopping, measuring, right through to hunting and fishing. The blade itself is polished to a beautiful mirror quality shine and the handle is riveted for heavy duty use so you can work with your Hori Hori trowel time after time without fear of wear and tear.

What does Hori Hori mean?

The Hori Hori blade 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.
