If you like to garden, you need this tool
If you like to garden you need this tool. My wife and I have been in our current home for 20 years. We enjoy gardening and have 70% of our backyard devoted to speality trees and gardens. One of the ways we save money is by propagating or dividing existing plants. This is where the Hori gardening tool comes in, you can dig holes for bulbs,divide plants with it's very sharp serrated edge, prune with the sharp straight edge. This tool is professional quality.

Best garden tool ever
This is the best cutting tool I have ever gotten. When I first planned my landscape, I installed the black vinyl edging to separate the bedding to grass areas, but some grass always finds a way to grow over the rolled edge and invade the mulch. With the pointed tip of this Nisaku knife, I am able to plunge into the earth where the grass needs to be removed and once into the root depth, I am able to slice along the black edge line as my guide, and redefine the sculpted borders. As with any knife, you need to give full attention in clearing out the area not to harm yourself. This is a very sturdy sharp instrument, serrated on one side for separating plant roots like huge hostas, and the other side is smooth so you can slice more exact cutting to get the job done without leaving a ragged edge look in the grass line. This is ideal for digging out broad weeds that have implanted themselves where they have invaded your bedding and lawn areas. Another great use is cutting away the spent flower leaves in Spring like daffodils, tulips, etc. This makes quick work because it cuts them neatly like butter.

Sharpest Darn Garden Tool I Own! Holy Smolie Sharp!
Wow! Is this thing sharp! My wife wanted one of these so here we are. This is a quality tool right from the get go! Pick it up & it has a nice heft to it without being overly heavy. The sheath is an outstanding item to come with it. It is Stainless steel & stays clean easily. It is marked on the blade to 6 inches & also in metric up to 150mm. The blade is curved & allows easy plant prying. It is sharp enough on either edge to cut through the grass roots to multiply them about. The blade is strong & one edge is serrated & the other is a very sharp regular edge. The Handle is a nice hard wood with a lanyard hole if one wants to put one on. All in all a great tool!

A couple of imperfections...
These Japanese Hori Hori gardening tools are becoming popular very fast for a good reason. They are strong, sharp and durable. You can use them for digging and transplanting, pruning, harvesting, weeding and even light tilling in your garden beds. There seem to be a variety of styles of the main idea, usually the length of the blade, and weather one side of the blade is serrated or not. I do not see how you can go wrong with any variation, as long as you buy a quality tool. This model has some very nice features: A hole in the handle to allow hanging; a quality sheath; a solid and well attached handle; engraved depth markings in inches and mm; and a slightly curled stainless steel blade. I would avoid purchasing a tool with too long of a blade, since I think it would be unwieldy. This tool has a blade of about 7 inches in length from tip to attachment at handle, which seems to be about perfect. While I like this tool and think it will last for many, many years, I do have a couple minor complaints that I consider manufacturing flaws. The first is that the back side of the serrated edge has a slight burr, which I honed off with a sharpening stone. The second is the attachment of the blade to the handle. There is quite a gap in the wood that will collect dirt and debris, leading to the eventual deterioration of the wood handle (see photo). Think of your finer kitchen knives and how the metal is seamless with the handle. In my opinion, a fine (and expensive) gardening tool should be of equal quality, thus the reduction in my rating. I understand that this is a tool that will be used in the dirt, but out of the package it should be perfect and a tool to be proud of, especially if you take good care of your tools, like I do, and wish to leave them to your next generation of gardeners.

Sharp, Thick, Polished Blade
The Nisaku NJP650 Hori Hori (Dig Dig) Garden knife combines a traditional Japanese wood handle with a stainless steel blade. It’s a versatile trowel/weeder/bag slicer. The blade has straight and serrated edges, lateral curvature, and a scale for measuring planting depth and spacing. It is beautifully crafted with mirror polish and sharp single bevel cutting edges. The full length serrated edge is helpful for sawing through roots. I enjoy using it in the garden. That said, this product could be even better. Durability: 1. The blade tang extends only 2¼ inches into the 5¼ inch handle. Other comparably priced knives have full tangs—full length steel backbones to prevent handle breakage with triple riveting to prevent loosening. Handle failure typically occurs after extended use; it is seldom mentioned in product reviews written after a short period of ownership. 2. The cloth-backed vinyl sheath is less durable than woven heavy fabric sheaths provided by competitors. Safety: The handle has no guard to protect the user’s hand from slipping forward onto the sharp blade. A hand guard improves safety and makes digging easier by providing a structure to push against. Ergonomics: The handle is OK for short jobs, but not comfortable during prolonged use. It has a sharp-edged open slit along the tang. Quick fix: Wrap athletic tape around the handle. Assessment: The Nisaku NJP650 is a useful garden tool, but many other choices are available. Investigate to determine which product best matches your preference.

Very high quality
I was tired of buying 5 dollar tools and having to replace them after a season. I saw this item online and was skeptical about what the quality would be I chose it. I got it in the mail and was blown away by the quality. For starters, it's just pretty. Looking at it you can see great craftsmanship and high quality materials. The blade is about a half tang up the handle for added durability and strength. , The blade itself is durable and and would be easy to sharpen every so often. I appreciate the measure on the front of the scoop and the serrated side is great for cutting through roots and weeds. As with any tool, the key for longevity is keeping it clean. I will be oiling the handle and making sure it is cleaned well every so often. By just keeping it clean I'm sure this tool will last decades.

Very Useful Tool
I had never bought one of these before for gardening, but when I was offered one to evaluate I found it to be very useful. It has a serrated/saw tooth type edge and a straight edge for cutting through small roots, cutting landscape fabric, rope or severing weeds with deep roots. It also has an inch and mm scale on the curved blade. The cutting edge of the knife blade is as a steep angle and is very sharp. The angle of the cutting edge should provide for long use before it needs resharpening. The handle is made of thick and sturdy wood and the knife comes in a synthetic sheath with snap closure. It can also be used for planting small plants or transplanting.
