So I've been thinking about taking a hori-hori into the field for a test spin, ultimately to replace my trowels. It seems like a Swiss army gardening knife. Apart from being concave for digging, it cuts roots, branches, sod, opens bags, cuts rope/twine, etc. The blade even has measurements for planting bulbs at proper depths. I like to keep my pruners hip holstered for ready access, and the hori-hori is generally sold with a holster. I imagine that it would be versatile enough that it would make a good companion to the pruners hanging off my hip. After many years working in horticulture for many different companies, I am a bit surprised that I have never encountered one. So my question is whether or not they are as good of a tool as they appear to be? What is a good brand?
