    Comments about Japanese Hori Hori Knife:

    I have heard great reviews of the Hori Hori from various master gardeners and decided to get one from Duluth based on the reviews on the site. What I got, in terms of craftsmanship of the product was FAR less than expected. My first concern, the tang of the hori hori (the part that is seated into the wooden handle) only extends halfway into the handle. In a short time (less than 4 hours of overall use) the blade is loose and the handle wobbles a bit. The second thing is that the synthetic sheath that comes with the item is just about useless as it is a flimsy piece of vinyl with a plastic snap. For paying over $30 for the tool and shipping one would expect better quality.

          Almost the only tool I carry while gardening. Digs and chops up the local aggravatingly intrusive vine that loves to invade my garden. Also handy in the house for opening stubborn packaging YOU know - those plastic vacuum packs that don't wanna open!? Or those taped together boxes from the big box stores? Even the tough plastic shipping envelopes! Works like a champ! A really good all around tool for the garden and house. LOVE IT!

              This formidable garden tool can do so many things. I have used it to plant bromeliads, & dig holes for small plants. It's broad enough to use as a trowel. Unlike a trowel, it won't bend. It is made of thick, super strong steel. It has a serrated edge with wide teeth which works well for cutting off tough dead leaves and stems. The wooden handle is comfortable to hold. I've wanted one for a long time and am very happy with the purchase. Just be aware, this great garden tool looks like a weapon. So if you're gardening with friends you might get strange looks.
