The "Special Edition" Premium Nisaku hori hori has several features that make it the best weeding and planting tool available. First and foremost, its made of a higher quality, fully quenched stainless steel: DSR-1K6 (HRC58) for all you knife nerds. This means it is harder, stronger and will hold an edge longer than the standard hori hori, which already puts up with a lot of abuse with our field crew with minimum sharpening.

This hori hori also has a hard-molded plastic handle, which will be more durable than the wood handle and reduce the overall tool weight to 7.5 oz (212 g). It also has a hard plastic sheath with an elastomer belt loop and even a little hole at the bottom of the case so you can strap it around your leg as well. Beyond those major improvements, the design is very similar to our standard Nisaku Hori Hori.

This Japanese-made tool shows its samurai sword heritage with a sharp-tip, two razor sharp edges, one straight, one serrated edge and a polished finish. It also has just enough curve to the blade to scoop soil. It easily cuts through hard soil, roots, burlap, rope and plastic. This is the perfect tool for hand weeding and for planting herbaceous (perennial and annual) plants. Plus, you’ll feel like Rambo carrying it round the garden.

Which brings me to the point: we also think this is a great tool for camping and survival situations. This multi-purpose tool is no doubt as useful for fighting off hungry mountain lions as it is for digging and cutting. And the "Special Edition" model will be extremely durable through hard use for many years to come.

The blade is 7.5" long (185mm) and the hard molded plastic handle is 5.5" (140mm) for an overall length of 13" (330mm).
