shop Japanese Hori Hori Garden knife trowel multi tool with sheath at The Hive by VH Interiors in Altrincham, Manchester

Multi purpose garden trowel / knife.


This multi-functional landscaping trowel has a curved blade that can be used for digging, sawing and chopping.


The metal blade runs the full length of the ergonomic hardwood handle which not only has a great Japanese look to it, but it is carefully balanced to reduce wrist fatigue.


The trowel center has markings to help gage depths which is useful for a number of tasks in the garden such as bulb planting.


One side of the blade is serrated and ideal for tough jobs such as sawing through roots and branches or hacking through overgrowth whilst the other side of the blade is smooth for cutting and slicing. There is even a twine cutter built into the blade.


Equipped with a heat-tempered, hollowback blade, full stainless steel tang, and comfortable walnut handle, this diverse garden tool is made to last. The design means that with simple twists of the wrist you can cut and lift out stubborn weeds in your garden.

    Basic laws on knives

    It's illegal to:

    • sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less
    • carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a folding blade with a cutting edge 3 inches long or less
    • carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife
    • use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife)


    In Scotland, 16 to 18 year olds are allowed to buy cutlery and kitchen knives.

    Lock knives

    Lock knives are not classed as folding knives and are illegal to carry in public without good reason. Lock knives:

    • have blades that can be locked and refolded only by pressing a button
    • can include multi-tool knives - tools that also contain other devices such as a screwdriver or can opener

    Good reasons for carrying a knife or weapon

    Examples of good reasons to carry a knife or weapon in public can include:

    • taking knives you use at work to and from work
    • taking it to a gallery or museum to be exhibited
    • if it’ll be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, for example the kirpan some Sikhs carry
    • if it'll be used in a demonstration or to teach someone how to use it

    A court will decide if you've got a good reason to carry a knife or a weapon if you're charged with carrying it illegally.
