Niwaki Hori Hori Trowel
Specially selected by Antony Gormley for the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
"An invaluable garden weeding tool, good for planting bulbs, too."
The Hori Hori is considerably stronger than a traditional gardening tool. Based on a traditional Japanese trowel, the carbon steel blade runs through the handle so it does not bend or break. The trowel comes with a tough canvas sheath. UK-based Niwaki, named after the Japanesse word for garden tree, launched in 1997 specialising in refined Japanese design for every day life.

In September 2019, the Royal Academy of Arts will present a solo exhibition of the internationally acclaimed British sculptor Antony Gormley (b. 1950), the most significant in the UK for over a decade. To mark the exhibition the Royal Academy has worked with the artist on a collection of specially selected and exclusively developed products where the hand, eye and personality of Gormley is evident and celebrated.
Over a year in the making, the highly bespoke collection, developed in detail with the artist through conversation and collaboration, reflects the materials, ideas and ethos of his work.
