Uekibasami and Kiribashi
These are traditional Japanese gardening Snippers & Scissors. Carbon steel such as Yasuki steel is used and hand-sharpened to create the blade. The products in this category are actually used by Japanese Niwashi (gardeners of Japanese gardens). Uekibasami is excellent at inserting hands between trees and doing Sukashi pruning. Once mastered, Kiribashi has a variety of functions beyond just cutting branches, but if you don't master it, you won't even be able to cut branches well. Please consider carefully when purchasing.
