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.

Blade:
Apply a thin coat of protective oil after each use. Wipe clean of dirt, water, and fingerprints regularly. Use a medium to fine file to straighten out any larger dings or nicks in the blade. The edge can be honed with a medium sharpening disk or stone.

Sheath:
Waxed canvas should never be dry cleaned or machine washed. It can be cleaned carefully by hand. Brush off the loose dirt, rinse the surface with cold water, gently scrub with a brush, then let air dry. If stains persist, use mild bar soap or saddle soap.

After cleaning, waxed canvas may need to be re-waxed. To do so, use a wax conditioner and apply following the manufacturer's instructions.

Q: Why 900D Polyester?
A: 900D Polyester is water-resistant, resistant to bacteria, and very durable which makes it ideal for extended use in the outdoors.

Q: Can I store my Hori Hori outside for extended periods of time?
A: The Hori Hori is not meant to be stored outside for long periods of time. Extended exposure to wet conditions may cause rust and unnecessary wear and tear. We recommend storing your garden tools indoors after use to help them last as long as possible and to avoid the need to purchase a replacement.

Q: Where are Barebones garden products made?
A: Our garden products are designed in Salt Lake City, Utah, and manufactured by trusted facilities in China who meet Business Social Compliance (BSCI) or who are working towards their compliance with our support and guidance.

The Materials

Dense, smooth walnut. Heat-treated 4CR13 stainless steel. These two durable materials come together to create one of our most beloved and celebrated tools. Known for its density and fine, straight grain, walnut gives the Hori Hori handle a high-end feel without being too heavy. 4CR13 stainless steel exhibits good polishing and resharpening properties and excellent resistance to corrosion, both crucial qualities for a hard-worked woodsman tool.

The Inspiration

After studying and experimenting with garden tools from countless different countries, cultures, and climates, we discovered the Hori Hori. First implemented in Japan, the Hori Hori was originally used for careful and methodical excavating of plants, such as Sansai, in high elevation mountains. Translated from Japanese, Hori Hori means "dig dig", a perfect nod to the original and most common use.

The Design

We took the iconic Hori Hori and elevated it to a woodsman-style tool. The Hori Hori Ultimate is a hearty multi-purpose tool to use in your backyard, camping, bush-crafting, or anywhere you need it. 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, double-edged blade. Use the twine cutter & bottle opener to crack open a fresh one at the end of the day.

This version has the option of a durable sheath made of waxed canvas and reinforced lining. Clip it to your belt for easy access on any adventure.

    Best garden tool ever

    I did an internet search to find the Barebones website, just so I could write a rave review of the Hori Hori Ultimate with sheath. I bought mine last year through an online garden retailer, not sure if the expense was really justified, and I am so glad I did! After two seasons of use and a lot more garden experience, I can confidently say that this is by far the best hori hori I've ever seen. The quality and sturdiness of the blade and handle are excellent. The shape of the handle is so comfortable, and really reduces wrist pain and fatigue, which I struggle with due to chronic illness. All the little details in design are so clever--the metal cap on the handle is great for tapping in stakes, the blade is narrow enough to easily slip between plants, but fluted enough to hold a little soil when repotting--and I just find myself smiling every time I use it. As an example, I just finished planting my spring-blooming bulbs yesterday, and although I had several different tools at the ready, this was the only one I actually used. The blade is strong enough to get through my unforgiving Wyoming soil, and the edges cut easily through roots, and even half-composted twigs and cardboard in my raised bed. The whole knife is a foot long, with one-inch markings on the blade, which made it easy not only to measure the depth of the planting holes, but also the distance between plants. I ended up gently transplanting one plant from a mixed-species pot, filling in some potting soil in…
