About A-type

Almost all pruning shears manufacturers make the A-type, but Tobisho's A-type continues to adhere to the brass brazing manufacturing method that has been passed down since its creation over 100 years ago. As far as Tetsufuku knows, it is the only manufacturer in the world. Therefore, it can be said that Tobisho's A-type contains the history of Japanese pruning shears.

On the other hand, Tobisho has repeatedly upgraded the blades and bodies since they made products with the user in mind first. The shape of the handle was redesigned about 10 years ago, and now has an ergonomic shape that makes it easier to grip and less tiring. In addition, for A-type, it can freely select the material for the blade depending on the manufacturing method.

In this special specification, the blade material is Aogami steel No.2 (Blue paper steel No.2), which is one of the most highly regarded cutlery steel materials in the world. From quenching to prevent decarburization due to the lead bath, they pursued the contradictory performance of hardness and stickiness to achieve excellent sharpness.

This product is quite large and heavy at 225mm and just under 400g. In Yamagata Prefecture, where Tobisho's factory was once located, sericulture was popular for more than half a century, and this A-type 225mm was developed for pruning hard mulberry trees. Pruning mulberry trees is a huge amount of work, which can easily lead to fatigue for those working on it, and for generations Tobisho has aimed to reduce the weight of handles by thinning out handles while maintaining rigidity. This A type 225mm is a model that has a high composition, sharp blade, ease of handling, and is as lightweight as possible. This model is ideal for large people and tree species that require power.
