Woohoo! My new Nikasu hori-hori knife came today. I can't wait to break this one in! It is a knife, a saw, a spade, a measuring device, etc. Tough and simply perfect!
"Them that don't know him don't like him and them that do sometimes don't know how to take him, he ain't wrong he's just different and his pride won't let him do the things to make you think he's right" - Ed Bruce (via Waylon and WIllie)
I use my knife more than any hand tool except pruners. It's my main tool for digging in garden beds for harvesting garlic, dandelion roots, anything rooty that's less than 3-4 inches in diameter. As someone mentioned, planting bulbs is so easy with the knife.
Where did you get your new knife? Mine is still good but after 20 years of use the handle is starting to go.
