Yoshimitsu Hamono Shukkako-bocho Harvest Knife 150mm Stainless-clad
You'll carry your own image of Japan, but the Japanese themselves love to understand their country as a nōgyō-no-kuni - a land of agriculture. Whether it's the passion for fine food or the proverbs and turns of phrase we use every day, daily life and routines are deeply rooted in working the land. How many friends do you have who grow their own rice? We know plenty. Here in Hiroshima city our residential area is dotted with dedicated vegetable plots nestled between family homes. When it comes to growing food it just amazes us how many of our Japanese friends know what they're doing.
Tools make a difference, right? And while we might not be harvesting chinese cabbages on a commercial basis, slipping a craftsman-made Japanese harvest knife under a garden cabbage for a clean separation from the earth is a better prospect than clouds of dirt down the top of your gumboots, we're sure you'll agree.
This Yoshimitsu Hamono shukkako-bocho is made for moist circumstances - the stainless clad blade and resin handle ensure long-term durability. It comes with a magnetized case with belt-loop for safe and secure all-day carriage and efficient access. Push-cut, pull-cut, professional or part-time, it's the ideal tool to Japanify your own agricultural game.
