THE GREEN FINGERED
'Hori' literally means to dig in Japanese, and this handy tool is a cross between a trowel and a serrated knife. It can be used for weeding, digging, root cutting and even dibbing.
In some places it is traditionally believed that the giving of a knife as a gift to a friend will cut or sever the relationship. To avoid such ill luck, the receiver should give a coin in return so as to "pay" for the gift. It is common to include a penny, often taped to the blade, with a knife given as a gift which the receiver is to return as "payment".
