Item details

Rūtsu Hori Hori Knife Sheath

If you enjoy using a hori hori knife or you know someone who does, then you'll love this cleverly designed and beautifully handmade hori hori sheath. A nice upgrade from the flimsy factory sheaths, the Rūtsu Hori Hori Sheath is pleasing to the eye and made to last. It's hand crafted for strength and durability from natural poplar and hemlock wood, and high quality latigo and chap leather.

The hidden spring retention system holds your knife securely with no need for additional retention snaps (that get in the way and can break or rust out) yet still allows for an easy one handed draw and re-sheathing. A big advantage when your hands are muddy or full of plants and seed packets! 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 again be tempted to set your hori hori 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!)

As practical as it is beautiful, it may be the perfect way to increase your gardening pleasure and upgrade the hori hori you already have.

Sheath is designed to fit snugly on a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) wide belt (not included in this listing). As an option, an additional snap can be added to ensure a snug fit on a 1-1/4" (3.2 cm) belt.

Fits most commonly available hori hori knives with blade width of 1-3/4" (4.4 cm) and length of 7" (17.8 cm) or less. However, in the unlikely event that your knife doesn't fit, the sheath may be returned in unused condition. Please review our policies page for details.
