Niwaki Hori Hori
Japanese Trowel

Incredibly useful weeding and planting trowel.

More Information

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, or upgrade to the heavy duty Long Holster option for a perfect fit.

Tips

    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.

    Caring For Your Tools

    Most of our 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
    • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
    • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
    • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres
    • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
    • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts

    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, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).

    • Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks
    • Sharpen Shears and Topiary Clippers EVERY TIME you use them - the difference is amazing
    Spectacular tool, how did I ever garden without it?
