Hori Hori Garden Knife & Sheath

$159

Originally designed to mimic the popular Japanese Garden Knife, hori hori roughly translates to “dig dig”. This hearty, multi-purpose tool is built for versatility. Cut off weed roots below the surface. Pound in garden or tent stakes with the flat pommel base. Measure planting depth with the handy inch marks. Saw a branch or whittle kindling with the rust-resistant doubled edge. Made for use in the backyard, camping, bush-crafting, or anywhere you need it.

Smooth and durable walnut handle seamlessly fits with the heat-tempered 154mm (6 ¾") pointed blade for a tool that just feels good in your hand. Added twine cutter doubles as a bottle opener, so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage of your choice after a hard day’s work.

This product is proudly manufactured by trusted facilities in China who meet Business Social Compliance (BSCI). As a Certified B Corporation, Barebones ensure their commitment to safe, ethical, and sustainable practices is upheld by each company and artisan that touches our products worldwide, without exception.

Care:
Simply wipe or scrub clean. Occasionally, or at least for winter storage, apply a quick coat of oil to seal and protect the blade & wood handle. We recommend our Japanese Camellia Oil.

Hori Hori Sheath

The Hori Hori Sheath unites utility and design. Made of 900D polyester canvas with an interior liner, it weathers real-world use while protecting the blade from dulling. Stainless steel belt clip supports easy carrying and accessibility, while the strong handle strap restricts the blade from slipping or moving. Open end allows for easy cleaning and prevents soil buildup, preserving the blade for years of continued use. Accented with full-grain leather and copper to complement the rest of our Woodsman Collection.

  • 900D polyester canvas construction
  • Reinforced with heavy-duty copper rivets
  • Copper-finished snap closure
  • Metal belt clip

Care:
Brush off the loose dirt, rinse the surface with plain water, gently scrub with a brush, then let air dry. If your stains persist, use a mild bar soap.

Maker Profile

Barebones

“When you do good from your heart, magic happens, and that goodness comes right back.”

Robert Workman has spent his career finding ways to give back: from the early days with his first philanthropic endeavour, Tifie, a non-profit that helped marginalised individuals meet basic needs, to Goal Zero, a company that started as a way to provide solar power to groups in the Congo (and now to many around the world).

In recent years, Robert has gone back to his agricultural roots by creating Barebones and the products that help connect people to food, nature, and the primal pull of the fire. He’s become more in tune with mother nature and finds joy in helping others do the same

Barebones is about what feeds you. Literally. Figuratively. Soulfully.

Barebones is a certified B Corporation.
