    That would work in Tioga up on the mountain. Nice job.

    Great review, my friend…I love everything about it

    I’ve wanted a hori hori for a long time. Unfortunately, shipping to my country is more expensive than the tool itself.
    Having proper tools is half the job.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Junky! You bent it with light duty work.Thanks for the review that something I won’t buy

  8. Destinations Chronicles on May 12, 2021 at 12:52 am

    That tool looks awesome, but I am accident prone and it kind of scares me. Thanks for this info~

  9. Living the Dream on May 12, 2021 at 12:53 am

    This tool looks awesome! It would make short work of gardening projects.

    I looked up your review because my husband just bought this brand of hori hori on eBay for $9. My first thought was that the point wasn’t pointy enough for my needs. It is gorgeous and super sturdy, though.

    I have several brands of hori horis because they are the BEST tool for gardening. My personal favorite, of all the brands I have, is the Lesche Standard Digging Tool & Sod Cutter. I like it because it’s got a lovely sharp pointy end which I use ALL the time for weeding and digging holes. My soil tends to be dry so it’s hard to dig into. The edges aren’t that sharp, though, but I haven’t needed that function.

    My husband prefers the Nisaku. It’s gorgeous and light. And the small one is light, so it’s heavenly for small jobs/pots.

    That is indeed a very nice heavy duty tool. Because it has sharp edges like a knife, I would have thought that they would have a guard to avoid having your hand slide down the handle and onto the edge.

  21. Jo Flammer on May 12, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Love this…would make a great Christmas gift for a gardening mom! Just sayin…:)

  22. HillbillySelectReviews on May 12, 2021 at 1:16 am

    I can definitely find a use for that in my garden. Thank you for the information.

  23. Clayton County History Hound on May 12, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Nice review. Thanks for sharing and take care.

  24. mark lawson on May 12, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Hi I’m thinking of buying one but when I watched the video it looked as if it bent was it just the camera making it look like that ? (Wide angle curvature) great video 👍🏻

  25. PREPFORIT on May 12, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Very tough and sturdy tool.
    Plus No more bent trowels.
    Definitely on my Christmas wish list.

  26. Spain Flower on May 12, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Nice tools dear friend. I can check it out…love gardening as well :))

  27. The Citystead on May 12, 2021 at 1:19 am

    You can for sure get a sheath! Oh and you did! So cool to see a bunch of people getting them now and saying it’s because of my video. I love mine so much best one I have ever owned. I’m doing a few more videos on it putting it to work testing out it’s durability. Loved your video!

  28. John Waddington on May 12, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Is it curved along the length, (as well as concave in cross section) or is that your camera ?? Looks like a banana, !!

  29. Rayven Moon Gardens on May 12, 2021 at 1:20 am

    So the sheath fits perfect for the classic?
