  • Niwashi Traditional Japanese Gardening Tool

Unlike western garden hand-tools the Niwashi Traditional Garden Tool uses an angled blade that cuts into the soil as you pull it towards yourself. Using a pulling and hammer like action (rather than pushing and jarring action), this tool is much easier on your wrists than others. The sharp blade makes light work of breaking up compacted garden beds, removing stubborn weeds and turning over soil for planting.

Once you've tried it, you will be hooked. If you haven't used one yet, just ask someone who has.

Comes in Right handed models as well as Left handed models.

  • High carbon steel blade 12.5cm long.
  • Wooden handle 26cm long.
  • Total length 33cm.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic Review by Nicole
I'd heard about these tools for a while now and every review was glowing. I couldn't see how great one tool could be - until I got one for myself!! Absolutely fantastic and so easy to use, like an extension of your arm. I've now bought one for my Mum and will be buying one each for my Aunt and Mother In Law! (Posted on 25/11/14)
the best thing for your gardening that you'll ever find! Review by Lady Jane
The Traditional Gardening Tool, just the "Niwashi" for short, is the handiest, most versatile garden tool you will ever use. Face it down and use it as a small pick to hack at a tap root weed, put the blade flat and scrap baby soft weeds right out of their nests. Scrape, cut, chop, dig, hack, make a hole, push earth to fill a hole, make a slot to plant a seedling. Great handle, great blade, a brilliant tool! Buy now this is a good price! (Posted on 4/08/14)
The best garden tool you will ever use! Review by Lady Jane
The Niwashi will be your best freind in the garden, it digs, chops, scrapes, weeds, cuts, zips out weeds from cracks in concrete or between pavers, digs little holes for planting seedlings, bigger holes to break up impacted soil and clay. Use the blade in a scraping motion to cut weeds off, use the point to act as a pick, use the blade to chop at stubborn tap roots. It is easy in the hand, versatile in use. Just brilliant! Whoever though of its angled blade was genius!
