Product Description

Japanese trowel, 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, but not invincible. Brilliant for planting bulbs, weeding and all sorts of garden stuff - but whatever you do don’t take it as carry on luggage. Comes with a tough canvas sheath.

 

Details

Measurements: 28.1cm x 7.5cm

Made in Japan.

Care: 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-out action.

Most of Niwaki's sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…

1. Correct Use:

Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused

2. Keeping Them Clean:

Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water

Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place

3. Keeping Them Sharp:

New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge.
