Wicks Forge

Hori Hori Knife

| /

These Hori Horis are made to be your new forever garden tool.

Handcrafted from one solid piece of forged stainless steel, these knives are built to be impossible to break and you'll never have to worry about paint chipping or contracting tetanus from rust.

Having trouble digging through the hard ground? Hit it with a hammer.

Use it to wedge out stuck rocks, or toss it into the ground like a throwing knife (we’ve definitely tried that here in the shop).

We've added a safety-orange paracord handle to make sure it's easy to find in your tool in the garden or fields, as well as a serrated edge on one side to help with cutting through pesky weeds or cords. 

Looking for a leather sheath for your Wicks Forge Hori Hori? This one from Grow Organic fits like a glove!

Each Hori Hori is hand-crafted in Maine using a combination of traditional and modern blacksmith tools and techniques.

Blade Length 7 inches (175 mm)
Blade width apx 1 ⅝” (40 mm) 
Total Length 14 inches (355 mm) 

The Limited Series features new pieces that take a bit of extra time to make or involve new designs and techniques. These pieces can be whimsical, a prototype, or something we’ve been experimenting with for years, but is not yet part of our normal production catalog. To share these with you, we launched this series of limited run pieces. These items will last you forever! But we may not be making them for very long.

Hori hori

Awesome tool! Extremely well made, and worth the wait. This is the last gardening knife/digger you'll ever need! Bombproof tool, and being stainless, no worries of ever rusting. Well with the wait, and the price. Thinking about ordering another!

Worth it

I’ve been using this regularly for 4 months digging and planting in tough Arizona soil and have zero complaints. You will wear out before this tool.

This is a great garden knife!

Well made and beautifully designed. Thank you!
