A Korean Hand Plow brought to you with a few improvements

We call it a hand plow, or plough, because like a plow it pulls through the soil making a furrow and drops the displaced dirt to one side. In Korea, where the tool originates and where it has been made and used for about 2000 years, it is known as a "Ho Mi" which translates as "Little Spear." 

The head of the tool is hand forged in hole-in-the-wall smithys outside of Seoul, Korea. Its design is astonishingly sophisticated. The leaf-shaped blade is thin at the top where it is widest, and thicker at the tip. Opposing curves (convex, side to side and concave, top to bottom) give the thin blade great strength and stability. 

Our version- we buy the heads and modify them slightly- has several significant improvements. 
  • We sharpen both edges of the blade so it can be laid over and used as a weeder slicer. 
  • The shaped hickory handle is through riveted to the shank so it won't come off. 
  • We offer a left-handed version. (Click here to order.) No one else does, insofar as we know. 
The Hand Plough is extremely versatile. It ploughs. It's a great clod buster. It's a decent weed slicer and a very good spot weeder. To plant with it, you loosen the soil with the pointed tip; roll it over in your hand and use the circular top portion to scoop a hole; set your plant, bulb or seeds and use the blade to backfill the planting hole.  Many gardeners stop by our stand at shows to let anyone standing nearby know that this is their favorite, most depended-upon tool.
