Tip Jar: The Sharpest Tool in the Shed

Today, our anonymous tipster is sending out love for a gardening tool called the “Hori, Hori.”  She may be spreading useful information, but I’m restraining myself from making inappropriate jokes.  Just know that I’m laughing on the inside.

. . .

The Hori Hori is the creme de la creme of garden tools.  Its unique serrated edge makes it your shovel and saw in one.  I’ve looked and, trust me, you simply won’t find anything that’s comparable. It digs into dirt, cuts through roots and weeds – you can even use it to open bags of mulch. And even better, you won’t need to go back and forth from the tool shed to get a project done.

Frankly, I use the Hori Hori for everything.  (Ignore Tasha’s giggles.)

There are two models of the Hori Hori.  I opted for the more expensive, stainless steel model for about $42.  I bought it last summer at Ward and Child at 678 South 700 East.  The second option is made of carbon steel and is about half the cost.  I haven’t spoken with anyone who has tried it out.

Do you know any fun Japanese words? Am I the only one in love smitten with the Hori Hori?
