Stock Number Item Description Availability Price Order Qty
Those of you familiar with Japanese tools may note the similarities between this beautiful gardener's knife and the Japanese Hori Hori, or digging knife. This Dutch version comes from a 4th generation company in Holland who have been producing beautiful, innovative gardener’s tools since 1898. Keep this at your side. It's an exceptionally strong and stiff digger that will cut and saw through the toughest plant root systems – even bamboo. 13” long overall, with a 7” blade made of 5 mm thick (almost 1/4”) hardened boron steel and an oiled ash handle.
About DeWit
DeWit tools are a direct connection to the time when the best tools often came from the village blacksmith. Innovated and evolved from experience and made to last forever, a DeWit-made tool represents the closest possible connection between the tool maker and the tool user to be found in today’s global market. Willem de Wit opened his blacksmith shop in Kornhorn, a small village in northern Holland, in 1898. He did all the things a country village blacksmith did back then – he was a farrier, repaired kettles and sold bicycles. When his sons joined him the business grew, making tools for agriculture. A DeWit tool came to be known to combine good design, skilled craftsmanship and the very best materials, and soon their spades and hoes were in demand all over Holland. The 4th generation of the de Wit family today runs the company by the same principles and standards. Skilled hand forging may be augmented with modern techniques and equipment where appropriate, but the essential connection between the designer/maker and the user endures – only now the de Wits listen to gardeners and farmers from all over the world. And their continued insistence on only the best materials can be readily appreciated in the use of FSC-certified ash handles and Swedish boron steel – the same steel used on a popular brand of bulldozer blades!

  • Great Dagger

    Sue, 6/5/2020 I had some reservations because the price was a little more than what I wanted to spend. But after using it in the garden this week, I wondered how I ever was without one! It’s fantastic. I love how easy it penetrates my clay soul. Plus with the sharp point, it get weeds out fast. It a very well made product. Very substantial in my hand. It doesn’t have a full tang. But I knew that based on the previous reviews. But for my medium to light yard work, this will work out just fine. Very glad I purchased the Farmers Dagger. Plus with a no hassle return policy, it’s a win-win.
  • Farmer's Dagger

    Mauri Kotila, 5/31/2020 In the fertile soil here in farm country the weeds have incredibly deep root structures. Prior to ordering the Farmer's Dagger my alternative farmer's dagger snapped at the handle / blade junction. Just not strong enough to handle the weed removal load required. All I can say is wow!!!! This is a mean machine and well designed for its purpose. Love it!!!
  • Perfect Farmer’s Dagger

    Bonnie Weist, 5/9/2020 I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he loves it! Although he hasn’t had a chance to use it yet, he was impressed with the heft, stating that it looked and felt very well made. Being from Garrett Wade, I knew I couldn’t go wrong!
  • My favorite garden tool

    Mary Blaine, 5/8/2020 When I first held my new Farmer's Dagger I felt transformed into a Warrior Goddess (ready to wage war on weeds, at any rate!) As a novice gardener, it helped me uproot dandelions with ease, and the serrated edge made quick work of tough berry vines. I cannot imagine being without it!
  • Best weeding tool ever!

    Patricia, 4/18/2020 I love my new Farmer's Dagger. It is sturdy and strong. As an organic gardener for over 30 years, I do a lot of weeding by hand. This tool is my new favorite. I can push it down deep to pull up dandelions by the root. It cuts through grass that has crept into my garden beds and loosens up the roots so I can get all of it out. Makes weeding a enjoyable and rewarding process.
  • Well made farmers dagger

    Raymond Cato, 4/20/2018 Very well made. I was doubtful at first, but when I got the product pleasantly surprised.
  • farmers dagger

    don clifton, 8/19/2017 This thing should be considered a survival tool. It is a great digger and will stand up to all the hitting and slashing you can give. I like it.
  • Good to have

    Edwin Baldwin, 5/6/2017 I bought it to be a gift. The recipient was delighted to get it.
  • A bit pricey, but worth it.

    Andrew M, 9/6/2016 This take on the traditioinal Hori Hori is of excellent quality. The handle is very sturdy with a hole near the far end for a thong and held securely to the blade with two peened rivets. The Boron steel is extremely hard and holds an edge forever, once you put an edge on it. Only complaint is that the factory edge is fairly dull and required some work before it was just how I wanted it. It would also be nice if it came with a sheath.
  • Great garden knife

    David, 5/27/2016 This is going to become a favored garden tool. Heavy knife that will hold up to cutting through roots and digging in heavy clay soil. Wish it came with a sheath.
