Rice Knife

A favorite tool to harvest veggies, cut back weeds, or do end of season clean up in the garden. The serrated edge blade never needs to be sharpened, and the 8" (20.3 cm) wood handle gives you that helpful extra bit of reach when you need it.

We've taken a traditional rice knife and hand engraved it with the encouraging phrase "Growing Abundance" to celebrate your efforts in the garden. Then, we've applied a hand rubbed wax finish to help protect it from the elements, but still allow the natural oils in your hand to create that warm luster over time.

We'd be happy to replace our standard engraving with your personalized message as an option (16 character limit, including spaces). Personalized engraving may add 1-2 additional days to shipping time and personalized items cannot be returned.

The Rice Knife is typically used in a two handed motion by holding what you're cutting in one hand and drawing the knife blade across the material in a pulling motion with the other hand. This makes it easier if you want to harvest selectively. Or you can swing the knife more like a machete if you want to clear a larger area.

This full size Rice Knife is available with either a traditional carbon steel blade, which will take on a nice patina with use. Or it is also available with a stainless steel blade if you prefer.

Key Features:

o Serrated blade never needs sharpening
o Natural wood handle, warm to the touch
o Handle engraved with "Growing Abundance", can be personalized instead
o Handle length provides easy reach to center of garden beds
o Great for cutting back weeds and grass
o Lightweight, won't tire you out


Rūtsu Rice Knife Sheath

We fell in love with the Rice Knife the first time we used it. Its pure simplicity and effectiveness can't be beat. But there's never really been a safe and convenient way to carry it. (We weren't too keen on one friend's practice of sticking the handle in his back pocket and hoping for the best - B, love you man!)

That's what inspired us to hit the workshop and start tinkering. Now, over a year later, after many design improvements, lots of real world testing, and helpful feedback from gardening friends, we're ready to share the Rūtsu Rice Knife Sheath.

We designed our sheath to be beautiful as well as functional, and each one is completely handmade. The sheath body is crafted from strong but lightweight poplar wood, finished with a hand rubbed wax application. The two part belt loop and hanger system, made of high quality latigo and chap leather, was designed to provide the perfect balance of flexibility and rigidity for a one-handed draw.

The hidden spring retention system holds your knife securely with no need for additional retention straps (that get in the way and can break or rust out) yet still allows for easy draw and re-sheathing. A big advantage when your hands are muddy or full of harvested fruits and vegetables. And the open bottom design is self-cleaning, shrugging off dirt and mud with ease.

The convenient snap on belt loop makes putting it on quick and easy so it's always with you when you need it. You'll never set your Rice Knife down on the ground "just for a minute" so you'll never be at risk of losing it. (This actually happens more often than you might think!)

Key Features:

o Clean, elegant design. Natural materials.
o Box sheath design enables easy one hand re-sheathing
o Open bottom is self-cleaning and won't collect dirt and mud
o Spring retention system holds knife securely, but allows easy access
o Snap on belt loop for easy on/easy off
o Fits most common rice knives
o Ambidextrous design
