Hori Hori Ultimate Knife

Originally designed to mimic the popular Japanese Garden Knife, hori hori roughly translates to “dig dig”. This hearty multi-purpose tool is built for versatility. Use it in your backyard, camping, bush-crafting, or anywhere you need it. Pound in tent stakes with the flat pommel base. Measure planting depth with the handy inch marks. Saw a branch or whittle kindling with the rust-resistant doubled edge.

Smooth and durable walnut seamlessly fit with the heat-tempered 6 ¾” pointed blade for a tool that just feels good in your hand. Added twine cutter doubles as a bottle opener, so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage of your choice after a hard day’s work.

This elevated version of the hori hori has the option of an added durable 900D polyester sheath with reinforced lining. Clip it to your belt for easy access on any adventure.

The Ultimate Hori Hori is built like the tools that my Dad and Grandfather had (and that are still going strong). Worth twice the price.

No sheath?

I love this knife as I already have one that came with a sheath. I wanted the darker color, so I ordered it, but no sheath was provided? Not sure why my other came with a sheath, but this came bare.

An amazing hand tool

What a wonderful tool. The Hori Hori. A garden trowel on steriods, and so well designed and fashioned that one thinks, "Why haven't these improvements happened before now?" But then we Americans sometimes overlook the contributions other cultures and communities accept as a given. One personal glitch is the wait for the sold-out/ back order carrying sheath for it. I know Covid Year production deadlines have been disrupted in all kinds of product lines, but I'm eager to hang the sheath on my work belt when it is available.

This tool is amazing! its great for planting and breaking up small areas of ground. With the curved side it functions as a shovel and it serves as a weed puller also. This tool feels very solid and well worth the buy. My new favorite garden tool and I've told all my gardening friends about it!
