WEEDS SCREAM AND RUN when they see me coming with the hori hori. (Note that I don't know whether one hori hori brand is any better than another. It's the tool itself that's so great.)

If I could, I'd get one for each of my gardener friends. Sometimes I might need a spade or pruners or shovel, but overall, the hori hori is often the only tool I take outside to plant and weed.

Solid, unbending steel helps pry out deep weeds or dig a hole even in packed clay or gravel. The serrated edge is great for butterflying root-bound plants. And the centimeter markings helps me properly place seedlings and bulbs.

One thing I'd recommend that's been really helpful for me is to paint the handle with fluorescent paint AND tie some long (15-20") fluorescent plastic tape through the hole so that you don't lose it in the dirt; there'll always be some pink or orange ribbon sticking out even if you bury the hori-hori by mistake.

I've buried my hori hori twice. Once I actually called the local metal detector club to help me find it (it was within plain view of my back door for 4 months). The other time, I just ran out and bought a new one.

I've never damaged the blade on one of these. I killed the wood handle by leaving it buried for 10 months in soggy Seattle, but I still use the blade alone.

ANOTHER GARDEN TOOL RECOMMENDATION: Get a Circle Hoe.

You open the gift box. Yes! it's just what you wanted! You drop the wrapping paper, leave the wine glass, and the astonished friends, you zoom out to the garden even though it's perfectly dark by now, and you find that dandelion illuminated by the front door's light. You heft the hori hori in your hand. You are a warrior. You are invincible. The enemy will die. This sturdy, hefty tool feels great in the palm of your hand. It easily slides into the soil alongside the offending dandy. A little pressure, and pop! the root, the leaves, the whole rosette of the heinous green Medusa is air born like a cork out of a bottle. You think yes! finally! the war is over, I am The Gardener.

My wife commanded me to post this review.

Here is some information that is not included in the item description.

Measurements:
Blade length (tip to beginning of handle) 7 1/8"
Blade width (widest part) 1 5/8"
Handle length 5 1/4"
Handle width 1 1/4"
The stainless steel blade is NOT flat, it is slightly concave with serrations on the left-side and smooth on the right-side when holding the wooden handle. The blade isn't sharp (like a knife) but you don't want to poke people with the tip. There are engraved depth measurements on the blade (1"-6" and metric equivalents). The handle does have a hole towards the base so that you can hang it from a nail/screw. I'm not sure if the sheath is useful because most people don't wear belts in the garden, but I guess a clip might not work.

Based on the rave reviews, I purchased this for my skeptical wife (along with a Bahco Ergo Bypass Pruner PX-M2 medium). When she got the Hori Hori, she said "what's this?" After the first day of using these two products, she proclaimed that these tools were better than sex. It's been almost six months and she is still very impressed. She uses the Hori Hori to remove weeds and occasionally for light digging. According to her, the long blade gets all the way down to the weed roots. She also said the wooden handle is very comfortable. Fortunately (for me), I look like a genius for buying these gifts and she is very, very grateful.

If you spend time in the garden you must have this tool. I didn't think that a curved knife with a serrated edge on one side and a flat sharp blade on the other could literally change my life. It's that good. Basically the curved shape of the blade and the extreme sharpness lends itself extremely well to outdoor tasks. Weeds are an absolute pleasure to remove with this knife. Now I actually enjoy going outside to weed knowing that this knife will remove every part of those stubborn weeds.

Where I live we have these thorny weeds that have long tap roots. If you try to yank the weed out with your hands A.) You're going to get pricked by the thorns and B.) You're only going to strip the weed of its leaves. What ends up happening is that the root of the weed is still in the soil and it's all to eager to send out fresh new leaves in a few days. The Hori Hori knife puts an end to this misery.

You have several methods in which you can use this knife:

Method 1: Slip the knife into the soil at a 45 degree angle where the weed is and then press down on the knife which makes the weed pop out of the soil surface.

Method 2: (Used For thick weeds with large knobby roots.) Plunge the knife at a 45 degree angle into the soil around the weed. I usually plunge the knife about 2" away from the base stem of the weed. Now this is where the curved blade feature comes into play. While the knife is plunged into the soil with your hand gripping the handle move sideways around the weed as if you were trying to cut the weed out the soil in a circle motion. What this does is allows you cut all the little feeder roots as you cut around the weed. Once you've completely made the circle press down on the knife handle and watch that weed pop out!
