Hori Garden Knife Stainless Rust Free Blade w/Serrated Edge -

$44.99

Product Information

We made ours out of cast, high-strength stainless steel, heat treated so you can dig in the nastiest rocky dirt or near concrete walkways without beating up the edge. Since our Hori is cast, we could add reinforcing ribs near the handle so they don’t break off there. And we used our proven handle design, much softer and more comfortable than wood or hard plastic. And since it’s round you can use it at any angle without getting blisters. Our handles are bright colored so you won’t lose your tool in the yard. This is a tool for heavy digging, where you expect to have to chop thru small roots or maybe cut thru sod. Many Hori’s have very sharp edges on one side, we’re not so keen on this because any sharp cutting tool used in dirt won’t stay sharp very long and since usually you have your other hand close in where the Hori is, you run the risk of slicing your finger. So our Hori is about like a dull kitchen knife, sharp enough to cut thru sod and roots but not sharp enough to give you a bad cut on your finger. Our Hori is made of thru-hardened stainless steel, so if one wanted a sharp edge one could grind it sharp. That’s your business! Like all our tools, this one is meant to be left outdoors, poked into the ground out in the garden where you will be using it. It is completely weatherproof . It’s great in a vegetable garden, for tap tooted veggies like big carrots or turnips you can dig a hole next to the veggie, push it out sideways into the hole, and chop off the greens all with the same tool. Features High strength stainless blade – won’t rust Bright colored handle won’t get lost in the compost pile Reinforcing ribs near handle Made in USA! Uses General digging Cutting thru small roots Cutting greens off vegetables Cutting thru sod Dividing Weeding Planting Opening bags of compost, potting soil, etc. Scraping barbeque grills Stabbing slugs Chipping ice Very strong tool that will last for years to come!

  • Using the good steel is not cheap but once you start using this tool, you'll fall in love with it Here at Diggit Inc., we've gone thru many designs and metallurgy processes to come up with a good balance of strength and hardness at a fair price for our Hori Garden Knife. Out of the box, our Hori Garden Knive blade has a fairly heavy gray-purple oxide layer from the 3-stage heat-treat process: 7 hours at temperatures from 925 - 2100ºF.
  • NOTEWORTHY: This darker layer will wear off as the tool is used in the dirt and becomes nicely polished the more it is used. We took a brand new Hori and broke up every square inch of a 3 foot by 4 foot by 4 inch deep patch of hard-packed, rocky Seattle glacial till dirt to show how the oxide layer wears off to leave a shiny, silvery surface. If you are lucky enough to have nice, loamy, rock free dirt, you may not even wear thru the dark layer, it is quite tough.
