A 2/3rds sized hori hori for half the price.
Warning: Last items in stock!
This tool is a little smaller than our standard or premium hori hori's and considerably less expensive. The blade is just over 5" (130mm), compared to the 7.5" blade of the standard hori hori. Its a much lighter tool and easier for smaller hands to hold too.
This is still a top-quality tool with a finely sharpened stainless steel blade, straight edge on one side and serrated on the other. The blade still has a slight curve for scooping soil and a sturdy, grippy 5" (125mm) plastic handle.
This smaller size means that you get less leverage for prying out large weeds, but you get more precision as well to help you work in tight spaces.
This could also be a great wilderness camping tool. With both a straight and serrated blade for cutting, a sharp point and proven digging performance and increadible durability, its a valuable multifunctional tool. At only 3.2 oz (90 g), its also very light.
For this bargain price there are just a couple features missing. One is the sheath and the other is the measuring lines on the back side of the blade. Not deal breakers, especially considering this product is half the cost of the standard hori hori. Also, I'm starting to think with a little duct tape around the retail packaging you could make your own sheath pretty easily.
