Japanese Garden Hoes

Here you will find a fine selection of traditional Japanese garden hoes. It is a pleasure to work with them.

Traditional Japanese garden hoes are not stainless (unless otherwise specified in item description). The same thing is true today as in years gone by: the best tool blades are made of carbon steel, which simply is not stainless. However, it requires only a little care to keep them from getting rusty. Just dry them after use! From time to time they need to receive a smear of oil.

For all who prefer always to have a good-looking hoe we offer a range of Japanese stainless garden hoes. Besides its rust resistance, the stainless steel used in these hoes makes it easy to maintain a clean appearance. Please note that stainless steel hoes are not as hard as carbon steel hoes.
