A hori-hori is a knife that is designed to be used in the soil. It is ideal for planting small bulbs in turf or along the edge of woods because the blade slices through thatch and roots. Once you get the hang of the stabbing motion, many bulbs can be planted in a short period of time. Also useful for myriad other gardening tasks. Wooden handle with a stainless steel blade that is serrated on one side and has depth markings in inches and millimeters. Vinyl scabbard included. Unconditionally guaranteed. Made in Japan.
