Item # GT006
Superior function - a universally great tool
GT Hori-Hori Description
Hori-hori means "dig dig," and that’s what you can do with this multi-purpose stainless steel soil knife. It’s great for weeding, planting, dividing perennials and even cutting sod. One side is beveled for shoveling and the other side is serrated for sawing. We like it for cutting through small to medium-sized roots when planting under evergreens, and it’s become a favorite weeder for flower beds and mulched areas. This recently improved version -- the BENI Hori-Hori -- includes depth markers in inches and mm, as well as a more-secure blade/handle attachment and a hand guard for improved durability and safety. Synthetic sheath included for safety and convenience. Or, if you like to hang tools on your belt and need a sheath that will perform well over time, try our new leather-pouch option.
SpecificationsWeight: 8.4 oz.
Overall length: 12"
In response to requests, we’ve decided to offer GT’s high quality hori-hori with a leather sheath option, ideal for anyone who likes to hang tools on her / his belt.
