This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in tool care.

Here's a short video about how to use a hori hori knife!

From the video description:
"Demonstration on using Japeto's Hori Hori trowel knife- An essential multi-purpose tool "

Requirements to complete:
- must be sharpened with a whetstone (or more than one)
- hone
- test before and after with cutting paper

To get certified for this BB, post three pics:

 - closeup of pic of the dull edge OR pic of the dull hori hori kniferaggedly cutting through a piece of paper
 - action pic of sharpening
 - pic of the sharp hori hori knife having cut halfway through a piece of paper
