Hori-Hori literally translates as dig-dig!. The Japanese have a way of making mundane tools interesting and efficient. Conventional gardening trowels clog quickly, especially in heavy soil. They also tend to get bent and fall apart easily. The Hori-Hori will be a revelation to any gardener.

A fantastically versatile tool for gardening, collecting or re-potting. Use for planting, undercutting weeds, especially in lawns, re-potting large bonsai, planting baskets and tubs and lifting young plants. Great for working in amongst dense planting such as vegetable plots and flower borders.

A great quality gift for any gardener or plantsman.

Made in Japan by Sato this Hori-hori has a 178 x 42mm polished stainles steel blade with a sharp serrated blade along one edge. The back of the blade is stamped with a graduated scale in 25mm segments to help determine the depth of insertion. The handle is laquered hardwood with two steel pins and a hole for a lanyard or for hanging. You will not fine a better quality tool of this kind at twice the price!

Also supplied is a nice quality riveted vinyl belt holster.
