Me too and that's why I'm questioning the Hori Hori knife. I'm still dithering about the Felco 9's.
I’m a bit confused! So what do you actually use the knife for? Just weeding? & how is it better than any other hand tools? Would it be useful for my heavy wet clay soil that’s also horribly stony, just thinking as I have a lot of weeding to do in the coming weeks mostly bittercress at the moment but I’ve loads of plantain, narrow leaf, in the lawn so wondering if this’ll help get it out?
Felco's are worth the money. I have 2 pairs, one of which has a rotating handle. I much prefer the one with the standard handle. I've had both pairs for over 30 years.
My daughter's partner is a landscape gardener and I even sent him a text earlier asking his view on them. He recommends them highly.
I don't spend my money easily, except for plants.
I haven't tried mine yet and have promised to report back.....
