Hori Hori Garden Knife & Sheath
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.

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

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.
“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
