About Pruners Hirei

The development came about when a peach orchard farmer told Tobisho that he wanted a hand pruner that could cut thin and hard branches smoothly.

The motif was a pair of pruning shears called the "pistol type" developed in the Akita area of Japan. Hisui and Hirei are based on this shape and incorporate Tobisho's experience.

The biggest feature of these hand pruners are that they are less tiring. The feeling when pruning has already been described as ``like cutting butter.'' Its characteristics are due to the thin, sharp, mirror-finished blade. In addition, the overall shape and handle shape have been redesigned many times with the overall balance in mind. The difference in pruning may be small for a single pruning operation, but if you prun for a long time, the difference in fatigue becomes obvious. These pruning shears are especially recommended for professionals who are concerned about tendonitis.

Syojiro Tobitsuka, the first pruning shears smith who founded Tobisho, started producing shears for use in orchards and sericulture around this time. Through ingenuity and effort, the performance has continued to improve from generation to generation, and as a result, it has come to be used by professional gardeners due to its sharpness.

The current master blacksmith, Daiki Tobitsuka, has a manufacturing philosophy of "It's natural to cut well, but on top of that, be simple and sturdy."
