LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife
LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife Review
Gardening is made much more fun with a cool tool like the LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife. It is such a versatile tool that it replaces a few other tools that I would typically need to haul out with me to the garden. It can dig, cut, saw, measure, and more. Mind you, this tool is also fabulous for landscapers, camping enthusiasts, and any other outdoor lover.
What is the LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife?
The LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife is a garden tool made from rust-resistant stainless steel. It looks like a cross between a serrated knife and a small hand shovel. The blade is 6 3/4 inches long and has graduation marks on the concave face of it. The marks are nice and deep so they won’ wear off from repeated use. One side the hori-hori knife has a sharp blade and the other side has a triple-point serrated edge. This Hori-Hori knife has a full tang handle, making it extra durable. It comes with a heavy-duty nylon sheath.
What do you do with the LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife?
Like I said in the beginning, this tool can be used to dig, weed, cut, saw, and measure. I can take this out with me when I’m planting and not only dig the hole with it, but I can know exactly to what depth I’ve dug. I can then move on over and cut off a head of cabbage using either the serrated edge or the sharp blade. Weeds can be popped out easily with the strong tip or sawed off (come on, I can’t be the only one that slacked that long in the weeding department). The blade easily slices through roots of plants and weeds. It can be used to slice open bags of potting soil as well. Really, the sky is the limit.
How Do You Clean the LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife?
Clean up of any garden tool is extremely important for the life of the tool. Even the best stainless steel garden tool will be ruined if left to rot in water and mess. While this tool will last better than most, care is needed. Wipe the handle and the blade to remove any soil. Warm soapy water can be used to get it clean, and then it should be dried with a soft cloth. When dry, give the blade a spray or wipe with a bit of WD40 or oil. When the end of the season comes, use linseed oil to replenish the handle and keep it looking good.
Can the blades be sharpened?
Yes, the blades can be sharpened! It is best to regularly sharpen the cutting edge with a whetstone or a hone.
My thoughts on the LifeWell Hori-Hori Garden Knife?
So far, I love this tool! I’ve used it a bit around the house and yard. Mostly, Michigan has been too nasty for much playing in the garden but I’ve managed some. I love the feel of the Hori-Hori knife in my hand. It sits comfortably and doesn’t make my hand or wrist ache with repetitive movements. The blades are extremely sharp and do slice through things easily enough. The serrated edge cuts through thing fine enough, too. The measurements are easy to read and see, even when the blade is dirty. I’m impressed with this new garden tool!
