Please join me in welcoming Patrick Freeburger, of Truly Garden for a special giveaway of four Hori Hori Garden Knives!





• Save time digging and weeding. This heavy duty knife can pop out weeds in a snap.
• Sharp but safe. The blade is sharp enough to cut roots and heavy weeds. But the guard on the handle will help protect your hand and keep you from hurting yourself.
• Storage sheath. Comes with a nylon sheath to protect your knife when not in use. The sheath can clip to your belt, and includes a handy pocket for storing the included sharpening stone.
• Easy to sharpen. All Hori Horis should be sharpened regularly if you use them for cutting and digging in dirt.
• Because this product is designed for digging in dirt, the Truly Garden Hori Hori includes a sharpening stone that lets you sharpen the flat side of the blade.
• Quality that lasts. The Truly Garden Hori Hori knife has a full tang handle (blade is solid, all the way through the handle), which most competitors don’t offer because it costs more to make. The knife also includes a 5 year warranty, videos on how to maintain your tool in excellent condition, and full customer care and support.

Read the review of the Hori Hori Garden Knife here!
 
 


At the end of this week, we'll make a drawing for 4 lucky winners to win a Hori Hori Garden Knife! From now until Friday, all new posts in the survival forum are eligible to win.
 
To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up to receive the Daily-ish email.
 
When the four winners are selected, they will be announced in this thread and their email address will be sent to the manufacturer, and the manufacturer will sort out the delivery details with the winners.

 
Posts in this thread won't count as an entry to win the tool, but please say "Hi!" to Patrick and make him feel welcome!

Welcome back, Patrick! Your Truly Garden tools are truly awesome. Every single one I've used has been long-lasting and well-suited to its task! Thank you so much for making such fantastic tools, and joining us for another giveaway!




For those wondering about all the Truly Garden tools, here's some links to their review threads here on permies (with a summary of my own review. I really like these tools ):

 - Hand Weeding Sickle: I love this thing. It's perfect for walking around and hacking down grass and weeds. I use mine a lot!

 - Hand Pruners: These are just as awesome as my Felcos, and far more affordable! I honestly never wander my property without these attached to my side.

 - Rechargable LED Headlamp: We have three of these (one for each family member). They are fantastic for late-night foraging, power outages, or just plain fun (my kids LOVE to put them on strobe mod and dance around, haha!)

 - Three Piece Garden Tool Set They're shiny. They're durable. They feel great in the hand and they clean off really easily. Mine have been through rough use for almost 3 years by both me and my kids, and the tools are holding up amazingly well. I love these hand trowels!

Welcome Patrick, glad you're here! My wife gave me a Truly Garden Hori Hori knife as a gift many years ago, and it is still one of my favorites and sees use each season. I can say it really is a great knife!

Just adding a shout-out here to Patrick and Truly Garden. We have half a dozen hori hori knives here at Basecamp and use them literally every day we're working on gardening tasks.

Welcome Patrick - what Carla said. I've only got a crappy one that an acquaintance lost in my compost windrow. By the time I found it, it was badly stained, but the amazing thing was that I managed to sharpen it up and it still works - it just doesn't look pretty, and professional like yours does! They are handy things, though, so thank you for participating in this give-away.

Welcome back Patrick!  My husband and I just finished watching a bunch of Forged in Fire episodes. It gave us deeper appreciation for how these tools are made.

Welcome back Patrick!  

Just a quick question for you.  Everyone is raving about your rechargeable headlamps. I was reading some of the comments. You mentioned you can buy on Amazon prime.  Can you specify which one it is.  As there are so many. I’m tired of putting new batteries in every few weeks. What a waste!

Hi Patrick, welcome. As a metalsmith, I’m not sure I’ve met a tool I didn’t like—I admit to being a bit of a tool hoarder. The products you’re representing look sweet

Welcome Patrick.  I was just thinking this morning how the best most ethical purchases are those that make it so in the long run you don't need to purchase as much stuff, overall reducing your consumption.  To have more money we can either make more money, or spend less money.  Dollar for dollar its more valuable to save money than to make it, as income is taxed.  When i'm making a purchase I'm trying to consider if in the long run it will save me money and reduce my dependance on the industrial grid.  Some of your tools look like they make the cut.  Peace.

Welcome Patrick!

I was talking with a fellow gardener a couple weeks ago and they said they had your Hori Hori Garden Knife and loved it!  

I can see where it would be a fantastic addition to my tools, in fact it would replace several, I am sure.
