Diggit Hori Garden Knife

Diggit Hori Garden Knife

The master gardeners hand tool of choice for heavy hand digging

Made of cast, high-strength stainless steel, heat-treated with reinforcing ribs near the handle

These are an excellent tool where you expect to have to chop thru small roots or cut thru sod. Many hori hori knives have very sharp edges on one side. We're not so keen on this because any sharp cutting tool used in dirt won't stay sharp very long. Also since usually you have your other hand so close, you run the risk of slicing your finger.

So our Hori is about as dull as a kitchen knife. Certainly, sharp enough to cut thru sod and roots, but not sharp enough to give you a bad cut on your finger.

Our Hori is made of thru-hardened stainless steel, so if one wanted a sharp edge one could grind it sharp. Enjoy!

We sell our hand tools at quite a few shows in the area and for many years

A lot of people said they used Hori Hori knives, these were their favorite tools.

We never liked them because they had uncomfortable handles, the non-stainless blades got rusty, and the wood handles would deteriorate if you left them out in the rain or if they got wet. The blades tended to break off at the handles as well, since they are stamped out of flat sheet.  And they mostly come from China! 

So we thought, OK, if people like Hori's so much, we'll make our own, but we'll solve all the problems.

We made ours out of cast, high-strength stainless steel, heat treated so you can dig in the nastiest rocky dirt or near concrete walkways without beating up the edge. Since our Hori is cast, we could add reinforcing ribs near the handle so they don't break off there. And we used our proven handle design, much softer and more comfortable than wood or hard plastic. And since it's round you can use it at any angle without getting blisters. Our handles are bright colored so you won't lose your tool in the yard.

This is a tool for heavy digging, where you expect to have to chop thru small roots or maybe cut thru sod.

Many Hori's have very sharp edges on one side, we're not so keen on this because any sharp cutting tool used in dirt won't stay sharp very long and since usually you have your other hand close in where the Hori is, you run the risk of slicing your finger. So our Hori is about like a dull kitchen knife, sharp enough to cut thru sod and roots but not sharp enough to give you a bad cut on your finger. Our Hori is made of thru-hardened stainless steel, so if one wanted a sharp edge one could grind it sharp. That's your business!

Like all our tools, this one is meant to be left outdoors, poked into the ground out in the garden where you will be using it. It is completely weatherproof .  

It's great in a vegetable garden, for tap tooted veggies like big carrots or turnips you can dig a hole next to the veggie, push it out sideways into the hole, and chop off the greens all with the same tool.
