I ordered 2 hori horis, but only one was included in the original package. I contacted customer service and they shipped the 2nd knife immediately, and it arrived in time for Christmas. I really appreciate that!
It looks good and I hope it’s a successful gift for the gardener it’s going to.
This item is a desired Christmas gift for our son. It was recommended to him by his knowledgeable neighbors. I’m sure he will be so excited to use the gift!
The gift arrived in a very timely manor. Thank you!
I've been using the Hori Hori for decades, along with a Felco 2, as the tools I carry with me whenever I garden. Celtic Farm's version is strong and sharp, and a bit bigger than the ones I used to get, which I like.
I bought this beautiful knife as a Christmas gift. It arrived quickly and looks amazing. I’m sure the receiver will be thrilled with this gift.
this gardening tool is amazing it is very well made quite sturdy and will be a gift
thank you for you clear website and quick shipping
I got this as a birthday gift for my Dad and he really loved it. I had the order sent to me first, so I could look everything over -- then I mailed it to him. That way I got a chance to see it. The workmanship is beautiful and the quality is obvious. Everything about it is nice, from the way it is presented (in the lovely burlap bag) to the workmanship of both the knife and the leather case. It's just a really fabulous gift.
After problems with delivery, wrong address on initial order by Celtic Farm, Steve was able to help & solve the problem. The purchase price was reversed in a proper business manner.
My daughter loves her "Hulu knife" & was very happy with her birthday gift.
Quality product. I purchased for my husband for Father's Day. He absolutely loves it.
This is, by far, the most versatile garden tool I’ve ever used. It digs into the soil amazingly well, you can saw off annoying roots without getting another tool, and you can dig planting holes, too. Feels good in the hand, as well.
This was a gift for my friend who really likes one that I own. She loved it! She and I garden together and I’m sure she’ll get a lot of good use from it.
I would love to rate this product but I still haven’t received it and haven’t heard back from your customer support regarding where my package is. I’m pretty bummed, this was supposed to be a gift for my husband’s birthday a couple weeks ago. I hope this gets resolved soon.

I've owned a gardening business for more than 20 years -- and absolutely love this knife. It gets down into the soil and really cuts smaller roots, as well as helps me dig holes and transplant flowers. What a great find!
I ordered the Hori Hori tool as a gift for a gardener neighbor, who was overjoyed to receive it! She had been wanting one for months, and this beautiful, strong, finely-made garden knife delighted her no end.
I absolutely love this knife. It is my go-to gardening tool.
Just like the original Hori Hori that I own for the past 20 years and show major signs of wear and tear. This differs from the look-alike models that break within its first use. thank you!!!
Great for digging in the garden dirt for planting.
Best garden tool EVER! PERIOD!
Have ordered an additional one for a gift after seeing the impressive craftsmanship from The Celtic Farm. You will not be disappointed!!!
This is a great tool. I've been wanting a hori hori tool for some time, and it's incredibly useful already in the garden and for foraging. This tool is high quality and beautiful. I love the serrated edge & ruler on the blade. It seems durable and I like that it comes with a sheath.
Well made. Durable
The hori hori is the most useful garden tool ever. The Celtic Farm sells a beautiful one. Almost a shame to get it dirty. Dandelions, look out!
Wonderful tool especially for divid hostas
The knife arrived quickly, and was in good shape. Looks very well-built and waiting for this Northern Plains weather to warm up so I can use it.
This hori hori tool is wonderful. It cuts and digs through everything. Eady to handle and weeds come completely out with no problem whatsoever.
I ordered 4 of the Hori Hori tools, and only one came. The paper says 4 of 4. I have contacted you two times, and I haven’t heard from you, other than “Oh no, sorry that happened, we will check into it!”

i bought 2 of them - hope my friend likes hers - Lora -
It really is a great all around tool for gardening. Will tell my gardeing friends.
Bought this late last fall and love it. Really a very useful tool. I wasn't sure what to think at first as I'd never used one before. Now it's at the ready for anytime I'm heading to my garden. It has definitely cut down on how many tools I pack around. I do find I have to wear garden gloves with it or the handle kind of digs into my palm. It's really not a problem as I typically wear gloves anyway.
I bought this as a gift for my mom so we have used it yet (Minnesota and snow everywhere ) but it looks nice and is not to heavy I feel she will use it alot this spring and summer.
Bought two for my sons to use in their gardens when that season rolls around again! They were thrilled because I have one that they know I like!!
This item was a gift for a professional gardener. I’ll know better how she likes it when the weather is more conducive to working outside. She asked for it, and seemed happy to receive it!
Top quality gift for my favorite gardener.
This was a Christmas present for my daughter-in-law who has recently taken up gardening, and she was very excited to receive it. Customer service was excellent and the product was shipped as promised.
I gave one of these to my daughter in Spokane and she loves it. She can hardly wait until the snow melts and she can plant her garden, and move a few plants I've given her. Im fact, my has been swallowed by my own garden, and I'll need to find it or order a new one for me.
I ordered two as gifts. Very beautiful and functional. They were bigger than I imagined (it didn’t occur to me but hopefully you can easily tell by looking at the inches marked on the blade!) A good size for gardening. Feels solid and sturdy. I have used it to dig out weeds, cut roots, clean up holes and edges, prep area for planting ground covers. Yes, I did say it was a gift for other people but I have found it useful and probably get myself one, soon.
Love the serrated blade for cutting root balls and rhizomes
Just as pictured but also came with a holster.
My go-to gardening tool ~ I purchased two more to give as gifts!
I’ve used a Hori Hori for many many years, since I discovered them at the original Smith& Hawken store in approximately 1975. As a gardener it might be my most indispensable tool. I can’t imagine gardening without it. But I’ve lost mine somewhere in the garden and had to buy a new one. I’ve spent hours snd hours on Amazon looking for a replacement, bought one snd returned it, then bought another.I wasn’t happy with but I so needed one so I kept it. And then I discovered the one sold by Celtic Farm and I couldn’t resist the rosewood handle snd the full tang. It arrived today and I am ABSOLUTELY THRILLED with it. I will so enjoy owning it and using it. It is SO superior to any others I could find. I only wish I’d come across it first.
Great quality product. It's definitely a product that I'll be passing on to future generations of gardeners in the family
This knife is just what I needed to edge all of my flower beds and put a professional looking ring around my trees. This will be my go to tool for working in my yard!
I am so happy to finally own such a wonderful multitasker; not only is it great in the garden, you’ll want it on your camping trips too.
I am giving this knife to my sister as a birthday present in July. So it obviously hasn’t been used yet, but I know she will love it. Thank you
Actually this was a Mother's Day present for my sister. She wrote me a quick note "I spent 3 hours in the yard yesterday with my new hori hori knife. If one could be in love with a garden tool, I'd be smitten."
Husband loves it and fantastically made!!!
A “must” tool for any gardener
High quality. Much higher quality than other brands I saw when shopping.
Made my gardening easier and joyful.
I do love this hori hori. I went to buy another for a gift, and I was disappointed to see the price rise $15 from when I purchased mine last year. I looked on Amazon to see there was the same hori hori being sold for less, though I went ahead and bit the bullet to support a smaller business. Maybe the price has risen since more people are gardening since the pandemic? Not sure. Though I will be looking for alternatives from smaller businesses now. To end on a positive note, last year when the post was wildly off because of the pandemic, my original hori hori order was lost. Celtic Farms happily sent another, with a complementary salve! So I was happy to support the business again this year.
This is a great little gardening tool! We’ve only just got it, but it’s been used almost daily for digging up tricky little weeds. I’m looking forward to many years of use!
I gave this to my brother, who is a master gardener, for his birthday. He was thrilled as he'd always wanted one. He said that it will make the volunteer work in the town's library garden so much easier as it replaces several tools he used to bring along. He loves the quality and heft, the leather carrier and the sharpening stone, too. Thank you .
This garden tool is what I have been looking for all these years. It is the best tool for all small digging tasks and some big ones. The serrated edge is wonderful.
Quick delivery. Ergonomic and works great in the garden.
I've used Hori Horis for decades and think they're the handiest type of weeding and digging tool. This one's a little longer and heavier than the ones I've used, not at all a negative. The wood used to the handle is beautiful, reddish with a beautiful grain and polished, and the serrated edge of the blade is very effective for cutting roots, etc. I ordered two, and I'm very happy with the purchase!
Impressive, love the way it was wrapped also, it shows that you value your customers and appreciate them. I love the Hori Hori and will be putting it to good use very soon.
Love this knife used it to transplant some batchelor buttons already in ground, made the cuts around the plant lifted right out.
Beautiful knife! This will be a game changer in the garden this year.
Beautiful packaging, quality product, very efficient service , Thank you, I will definitely recommend this online store.
Bought this for my wife as a surprise... she absolutely love’s it. Very nice quality... I did a lot of research to find the perfect hori hori and couldn’t have made a better choice!!!!
To early to use it, but when I do I’ll let you know! But I like the feel of it already!
My daughter works at a flower farm so I have purchased a few items from you for her as gifts. Your products are good quality. She is using the apron and every tool I have given her and is always very complimentary when talking about your products. Thanks for making my shopping so easy and being my go to place!
Beautiful package and the tool is gorgeous....still have two feet of snow on the ground so I haven't used it.
Absolutely gorgeous and functional!!! The Hori Hori is beautifully crafted and I love the sheath it comes in ! Very satisfied with my purchase!!
I am a landscape designer and I bought these for gifts for my fellow gardening friends and I think they are going to be more than delighted.
This is a gift - so it hasn't been used yet. Looks like it will be nice.
My hori hori knife arrived and came with a leather sheath and a stone sharpener. It is everything I expected. I can’t wait for a warm day so I can be using it.
Very good quality
Great garden tool for weeding and planting. Includes sheaf, sharpening stone and burlap sack. Read about hori hori (Japanese tool) and when I found this one at The Celtic Farm I had to try it. Very well made, good price and fast shipping. Excellent tool and love Celtic Farm.
I brought the Hori Hori knives as gifts for gardening friends. The quality was better than expected and the burlap bags were perfect for gift giving, no gift wrapping needed. The recipients loved their gifts. I will order from you again.
This was bought as a gift for my daughter who just started gardening. She can’t wait to use it.
I love my new hori hori and am extremely impressed with the high quality at such a low cost. Can’t wait to get other gardening tools from the Celtic Farm!!
This item was a gift for an avid gardener. His wife makes high end purchases for inside and outside their home. The garden took was an unquestionable hit! The Included sharpening stone was an added bonus.
A friend recommended it & I think it’s great!
Great garden tool. I love it.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. Looking forward to hearing from him how useful this tool is.
The knife is better than expected. It came with a sharpening stone and leather case.
This was the third one we have ordered as gifts for family and friend. All have enjoyed using the hori hori.
This tool is absolutely a must for gardening!
This hori hori is so sturdy and beautifully made; I went ahead and bought one for a gardening friend. That one unfortunately got lost in the mail, but Celtic Farm was EXTREMELY accommodating. They sent a new one right away and even included a free salve for my giftee! Love supporting a small company with well-made products.
I have not had the opportunity to use this yet however look forward to next spring. I’ll be sure to come back and re-rate later. The quality is fabulous!
Really, really like my Hori Hori knife. It is my new "do everything" tool for my urban garden.
I bought a horihori for my daughter in Brooklyn, who's taken on our family's history of gardening. I liked it so much I ordered myself one to replace my old, rusted one I've had for years. I loved that it come with a whetstone to keep it sharp.
When I received the first knife I was so impressed with the quality and workmanship I knew my purchase was a good one. I bought it as a gift for my wife and she could not be happier to have one. And she uses it with joy. Because of the great response from her, I bought two more as gifts. With the same results. My experience with the staff has been just as superior.
Present for my daughter
What amazing quality and a tool very gardener should add to their belt. Add an ergonomic grip and a belt hook for the sheath and it will be perfection!
So beautiful and functional. The packaging was lovely and the quality is clear. Highly recommend
I like that its really good at getting deep into the ground, even if it's compacted soil. I like the wooden handle and case and it looks like it will be a long lasting tool!
I'm planning on harvesting roots with it this fall.
Great garden tool! So many uses
A fantastic hori. Well made, simple and elegant.
I used a hori hori knife for many years and it disappeared out in the garden one day, probably got tossed out by accident. I searched the internet until I found this one; the wooden handle was what I was seeking. I look forward to its accompanying me through the rest of my days in the garden, and I will bequest it to my daughter when it’s time. Thank you for its heft, its sharpness and its beauty.
Best balance & versatility of any tool I have. Does everything!
Beautiful tool that is up for all your gardening tasks
Well made tool with a very substantial heft and utility to it...almost a shame to scuff it with use
A must-tool for any Gardener. Makes transplanting quick and easy.
Beautiful and functional. My new favorite gardening tool. Thanks!
Great tool! Really works well in the garden.
I have used this knife for 2 months in my garden and waited to write this review. This hori hori knife is fabulous ...hands down my favorite tool. I went to a community planting gather and let everyone try it, we all love it. Originally I was going to buy one on amazon and I am so glad I found this site. I would buy another without question but doubt I will ever need to as this knife is solid.
A an elegant and durable knife with a full tine in the handle. So useful in the garden and also in the wild.
