Among the traditional Japanese gardening scissors, Kyo style scissors. Manufactured by Kanetaka in Kyoto, which has a history of over 350 years.
This Wabasami 180mm (7.09 inch) is made for the general public. Of course, professional NIWASHI (Japanese professional gardener) can also be used, but it is more suitable for soft branches, flowers, grass, etc. than hard branches.

The shape is similar to Ohkubo style, and it is a little smaller scissors. These scissors are manufactured with particular attention to the sound of cutting. When the lower part of the handle fits when you cut through, the characteristic sound of hitting an iron rod will reverberate around you. People in the area understand that you are pruning. In traditional Japanese culture, there is a culture that uses the five senses to imagine who is doing what, even if they cannot be seen.

The blade is made of Yasuki white paper steel. It is characterized by being little hard. Hard iron is used for the handle. Therefore, even if you cut a hard tree, it will not bend easily.

*Production method
They use a belt hammer and a grinder, but they make it entirely by hand. In particular, forge welding, forging and sharpening have a high level of finish that is possible only because of human work.

The main use

Pruning of wood.
