Garden Like a Samauri
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
This is a classic Style Hori Hori (Gardening knife originating from Japan) with a few new tricks. The bamboo wooden handle gives the tool an contoured, natural feel. Each side of the blade is finished differently so you can cut both soft and more coarse plant types. The little notch in the base of the blade is for cutting ropes or vines, anything that may be difficult to separate with a normal knife. Last but not least the end of the handle is metal so you can use it to hammer things and it adds a bit of durability to the tool.
The overall intended use of this knife is to to dig out plants by the roots, and this tool makes it easy. It is a well made and well thought out product that was recommended to me and i do not regret getting it.
Weed's Worst Nightmare
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I saw this and got it for the unique design and all the different uses for it that sprung to my mind, and it is even better than I thought it would. This is about the size of a typical garden shovel; but the spear point makes it so much more than a shovel. even though it can be one with the beveled side. Three thrusts into a root and you have a weed completely severed at the base, and just pull it out. The metal on this is extremely durable and also able to hone the sharpness if it gets dull or needs a finer edge. The sheath it came with is a bit bulky, but works great keeping it stored while not in use. Over-all this is the best garden tool I have found to-date, and have not even discovered all of the uses for this knife-shovel hybrid.
