Top of the range Hori Hori Knife Deluxe & leather holster.

As featured in the Sunday Times!

The new hori hori knife is concave in shape allowing for easy weeding and manipulation of soil. One side is serated for cutting through roots and difficult weeds while the other side provides a blade for cutting and chopping. The blade is marked up very clearly with a depth guage in both mm and inches which aids with planting and seeding to the correct depth. The blade also includes a hand guard to help prevent your hand slipping down the rosewood handle when using in a vigorous way. Lastly this high quality hori hori knife also comes complete with a robust leather holster which can be attached to a belt allowing easy access for the busy gardener!

As usual this high quality product is supplied in an attractive Japeto canvas bag and presented in a beautiful craft cardboard box making it an excellent present for any gardener.

  • Beautifully made rosewood handle
  • Blade is manufactured from solid stainless steel and runs throughout the length of the handle making it incredibly strong
  • Includes robust leather holster
  • Depth guage on blade in mm or inches
  • Blade guard
  • Superb quality blade with serrated and cutting edges
  • Weight: 302g, Length: 310mm, Width: 41mm

The big brother to the original Hori Hori knife sold by Japeto. Japeto brought in this new Hori Hori knife as it offered a number of benefits over the original very good hori knife.

This model is superior for the following reasons:

1. The blade runs through the entire handle of the knife making it stronger than the standard version

2. The Hori Hori Deluxe blade is made from high quality stainless steel, the standard is made from carbon steel which requires more maintenance and can rust without care.

3. The blade is slightly thicker than the original Hori Hori Knife

4. It comes complete with a handguard which prevents your hand from slipping down the handle of the Hori Hori Knife with vigorous use.

5. The handle is superior in quality and made from rosewood.

6. It comes complete with a durable high quality leather holster which can attach to any belt.

Reviewed on 22/11/2020 by Phil Cormie

Having only recently purchased a number of the deluxe hori hori for the gardeners I work with, my only regret is not ordering them earlier!

A versatile tool for using around the garden especially in the rockery where planting and weeding can be difficult with a traditional trowel. A great tool for weeding, bulb planting and planting!

Reviewed on 14/07/2020 by Tim

I have longed for this product for a while now having heard about them on Gardens Question Time Radio 4.... what a beautiful tool, murders dandelions in one swift painless action, great for digging, weeding, dock plants don't stand a chance neither do blackberry runners! Only slight criticism is the top of the hand needs to be a little more rounded but thats easily solved second criticism is the leather holster is poor quality compared with the quality of the tool but it won't be spending too much time in that anyway. Holster should have snap fasteners on the belt loop rather than having to remove your belt to fit and remove.

Never the less, this is the must have tool for every gardener.

Thanks for the review
Reply on 14/07/2020 by Japeto

Tim, we take your comments about the holster on board. However we wondered if there was a confusion between this hori deluxe knife and the standard one? We find the Hori deluxe holster to be of excellent quality, although the standard one is more for packaging purposes.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hori hori knife.

Delivery was remarkably quick
Reviewed on 15/06/2020 by Gordon, South of England

Delivery was remarkably quick and the quality of the Hori Hori knife is excellent.

In just a couple of days it has replaced the onion hoe as my favourite gardening tool, largely because of its versatility. It deals brilliantly with tap rooted weeds and bindweed and is also perfect for planting out small plants. 5 stars.

Favourite garden tool!

A small garden wonder

 Took delivery of this yesterday, and tried it out today. I can honestly say that I have done a whole morning's gardening, and it is just about the only tool I have used. The pointed blade is ideal for getting underneath the weeds, and the serrated edge makes short work of stems too tough to dig out.  The rosewood handle feels lovely, and the whole thing has the reassuring weight of quality about it. It also clearly has miraculous properties - since this is the first time I have ever enjoyed weeding!

Strong and sturdy Hori Hori Knife
Reply on 05/06/2020 by Japeto

Thanks for the review about garden products Ben. We believe that the Hori Hori Deluxe is certainly one of the strogest and best made hori hori knives on the market. With the deluxe version what is worth pointing out is that the metal of the blade goes right through the wooden handle whereas many other models only go half way. The stainless steel is also thicker than others on the market.

Great company, great tools!
Reviewed on 03/06/2020 by Mike Jerome, Thirsk

My partner and I are both employed as gardeners, and as such are always on the lookout for newer and better tools. A colleague initially lent me his hori hori knife, and I was very impressed and decided to buy one myself. It is easily one of the best horticultural tools I own. I've used it to chop untidy perennials, dig, plant, grub out weeds and saw woody stems. (It's also great fun to throw into the ground I must say!). My partner is a big fan of her new folding saw and (particularly) her garden scissors, probably as they're very comfortable to use. The staff at Japeto were very quick to respond to my enquiries regarding my engraving, and were both polite and courteous. Its hard to argue with the fast delivery time too! Great company, great tools.

Review of 2 parts!
Reviewed on 20/05/2020 by Ian Bye, Horncastle

1/ The Japeto team provide excellent customer service both at ordering & follow up stages, which in the current Covid circumstances, is more difficult for them & is far better than many online firms.

I can only thank them for their help & back up. My order was not big, but it seemed as though the team took a personal interest in their customer(s).Delivery came promptly & goods well & safely packed.


2/ The quality of the deluxe Hori knife is superb, well made & designed, with an excellent finish to both wood & metalwork. Lighter than I thought & a good 'feel' when used. Great value for money, as leather sheath alone (again well made) was more costly by a rival company as an optional extra.


The distance measuring tool was a new one on me & a try out, it works brilliantly at what it does, even in quite confined spaces in a border. As a tool in the vegetable garden it seems to do almost two things at once...measuring & digging hole!

A very comprehensive gardeners review!

After having a helpful conversation with the team we ordered a deluxe knife, stainless steel secateurs and deadheading clippers.

Quality and specification of every item is outstanding. The knife is far superior to the one we lost so carelessly.  The cutting tools are much better than anything that is available locally.
