Niwaki's Hori Hori Japanese trowel is an all-round weeder, bulb-planter supreme and general subterranean rummager.
The carbon steel blade runs right into the handle, so it’s tough and strong (though not invincible — use it with care). Brilliant for planting bulbs, weeding and all sorts of gardening.
The included durable canvas sheath helps keep the blade protected in your garden tool caddy.
We also sell a leather Long Holster that fits the Hori Hori Trowel perfectly.

You can keep your snips working properly by remembering the following:
Although considerably stronger than a regular trowel, the mighty hori hori is not completely invincible. Don’t stick it in to heavy soil and yank back hard…it’s much more efficient used in an in-and-out action.
