The Hori-Hori Digging Tool was originally designed for excavating aged stock high in the mountains of Japan. This is an indispensable tool for digging – in the garden ir cuts and scrapes weeds, roots and vegetables. It is also a great tool for rock hounds!


Bonsai trimming shear May 12, 2007

Designed for trimming roots, branches and twigs with ease, these traditional trimming shears are an absolutely essential cutting tool. The handles are designed to be large enough to accommodate your fingers and allow you to pick off prunings without having to out the shears down (a great time-save, believe me!).  The rivet holding the two halves together should be loose enough to allow the handles to open and close easily, so as not to have to be pulled apart. In addition, the blades need to be kept very sharp, so as to cut the stems cleanly without crushing them.
