Korean Hand Plow

Item Number: NKHP
Evolved over centuries by farmers, this hand-forged tool is a joy to use for a multitude of jobs. You can dig holes, make planting trenches, weed and cultivate. Swan neck, angled blade and comfortable wood handle form a natural extension to your arm and wrist. Heat treated blade is light in weight, but strong and beautifully balanced.

Blade 7" x 3", Handle length 5", 12" overall

When my decades' old Korean hand plow went missing from my garden last year, I reordered from the original catalog from which I had bought it. What I received was not the same tool. The blade was straight and didn't appear to be hand-forged. I was relieved to find this company's on-line catalog and so happy to find my go-to for almost anything tool. My neighbor got one too after coveting mine for years. Its unique design lets you quickly weed, dig up tenacious roots, dig narrow trenches for easy seeding. No wonder Koreans have been using this for millenia. This one I'll watch like a hawk that no one grabs it!

I love this tool! Whatever type of gardening you do, whatever you plant you will find this hand hoe very useful. It does so many tasks, digging, weeding, row making and whatever you could want. Of all my tools, by far I use this the most. You won't regret buying one or two!


Great garden tool

I like this tool. I like the design, the feel of it in my hand and it gets the job done. The only negative about it is that I cut my thumb taking it out of the shipping box. The newsprint-type packing paper concealed the three items I purchased. The Korean Hand Plow is not super sharp in general, but there are sharp areas on it, so be careful.


Best Tool Ever

I bought one of these about twenty-five years ago and although the handle finally came off from me leaving it outside too much, the blade is still fine. I just bought a new one because it is my go-to tool for everything--hoeing, trenching, hacking, shoveling, scraping. So glad to have another one.

I was intrigued by the shape and varied sides of the Korean Hand Plow when I saw it in the catalogue. But when I received it and actually used it in the garden, I just loved it! The pointed tip allows you to dig easily and make small trenches. The two differently curved sides make it easy to cover seeds then tamp the soil down. Great for my tender fingers and hands. Can't wait to find other uses for this versatile, well-made tool.


Wonderful Tool

I just received this and have already used it multiple times. It is easy to use and handle. I love it and am very happy with my purchase. Next year I will purchase the Long handled model which was sold out for this season.

The Korean hand plow has been my favorite tool for 25 years. I have bought several, even given them as gifts. I took one to Master Gardener class for Tool Show 'n' Tell, and even wrote a gardening column about it for our local newspaper. It does everything!
