Hori hori...

This hori hori ("dig dig" in English) is a traditional all-purpose Japanese gardening tool, useful for digging, weeding, trimming, planting. One edge is serrated for cutting roots and branches.

I wouldn't recommend it, but in a pinch, one could maintain a small garden with this one tool. Mine was made in Japan by Nisaku, and there are a number of manufacturers and artisans who make hori hori in the U. S.

Henry's books.
