Hori Hori Ultimate
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. Pound in 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 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.
The ultimate shield for the ultimate tool, the Hori Hori Sheath unites utility and design. Made of 900D polyester 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.

I could have swore that the scabbard was included at the price that I payed. It even showed them together. What a bummer.
Upon receiving this tool I was immediately struck with the high quality. The blade is heavy but well balanced by the wooden handle and pommel. The edges are sharp but obtuse enough for digging. Sheath is well constructed and fits the blade securely. Very impressed.
Great sheathe for a great tool! Excellent quality, have had mine for over a year and bought one for my daughter. My go to gardening hand tool.
I got this for my mother-in-law for Christmas and she is very much looking forward to planting season coming up!
Bought 2 of these, one for myself and one as a gift. Not able to use them yet because of the Northeast winter....but wow, the quality appears to be great, and the recipient was super excited to it out. Discovered this knife in the American Horticulture Magazine. Thanks for putting the article in Barebones. Once I check out using this tool in the gardens, I will consider another purchase. I feel like this tool would be a great raffle gift for a garden club or community group.
