Hori Hori Ultimate
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. 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. Made for use in the backyard, camping, bush-crafting, or anywhere you need it.
Smooth and durable walnut handle seamlessly fits 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.
The ultimate shield for the ultimate tool, the Hori Hori Sheath unites utility and design. Made of 900D polyester with an interior liner, it weathers real-world use while protecting the blade from dulling. Stainless steel belt clip supports easy carrying and accessibility, while the strong handle strap restricts the blade from slipping or moving. Open-end allows for easy cleaning and prevents soil buildup, preserving the blade for years of continued use. Accented with full-grain leather and copper to complement the rest of our Woodsman Collection.

Very effective garden tool
A friend recommended this type of tool, another recommended this specific brand, and I'm happy with both, able to dig and shear as well as weed, which was the only thing I thought it could do before using it. Fast shipping and no charges until it was fulfilled (unlike other vendors who charge right away and then shipping takes forever). So happy to have this sturdy tool, makes everything easier!
It’s got a good heft to it, the serrated blade is great for cutting grass in tight spots!
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law. She has a graden and I thought this would be a useful tool for her. I need to wait and see her reaction when she opens it on Christmas day. Having said that, It looks good to me and I am sure she will like it. Is there a way I can follow-up with you after Christmas with a final rating?
I honestly don’t know how I gardened so long with this tool. I am petite and so it is a bit large, but it is very stable in my hand. I will use it primarily to dig rhizomes, bulbs and footballs out of pots for winter storage. It works like a dream and I no longer need 2 or 3 tools to do the job of this one.
