Hori Hori Garden Tool
We dig it.
“Hori hori” is Japanese and roughly translates to “dig dig”—but that’s not all this brilliantly simple multitool can do. Pound in tent stakes with the flat metal base, saw branches for kindling with the serrated edge, and measure planting depth with the inch marks around the rust-resistant blade. The curled hook inset near the base of the blade is perfect for cutting twine or opening a bottle top at the end of a long day of hard work.
Keep your blade in tip-top condition with the waxed canvas sheath, which has a belt clip and an open end, preventing soil buildup inside. It’s a snug and safe home for what’s sure to become your favorite gardening tool.
