Our Hori-Hori or Gardener's Little Friend is marvelous for digging deep rooted weeds and planting bulbs and bedding plants. The saw teeth will cut through tough roots and branches. The front of the tool is shovel shaped for digging efficiency, and the back is beveled for easy sharpening. Each Gardener's Friend is forged from high carbon tool steel and tempered for heavy-duty use. The Red Beech handle is riveted to the blade. A scabbard with belt loop is included. The blade width is 1-3/4", the blade length is 6-1/2" and the overall length is 11-1/2".
