The gardener's new best gardening tool is the Hori-Hori knife.
This Japanese gardening knife is great for weeding, planting and even cutting sod. It has a very sharp 6-1/2 inch stainless steel blade (an improvement over the original carbon blade) that's serrated on one side making it an excellent tool for cutting and slicing through heavy roots and garden weeds. And it's concave shape serves as a trowel for scooping soil and other materials.
The Hori Hori knife is light-weight, durable, and its hardwood handle is sturdy and feels great in the palm of your hand. As you can tell, it's an indispensable tool for digging in the garden -- which is why Master gardener's love it.
I've all but given up all my trowels and weeders and I couldn't be happier. This is the one tool that will surely make your gardening life easier.
Beware of impostors, GrowTech makes the best quality gardening knife.
