How to use it: Just like ordinary scissors, but these are for plants, not paper.
Good to know: These are the real deal. As elegant as they are sturdy. The looped handle has blades that are thick in the middle and taper off at the tips. They're perfect for cutting thin, light branches, delicate stems, and leaves for flower arranging.
Details: Made in Japan in the traditional Ohkubo style.
Dimensions: 7.25” total length. Blades are 2.25”
These scissors remind me in their striking beauty of those tall and graceful 19th century bicycles with the huge wheels. I believe they are used as pruning shears but I bought them because I had never seen scissors like them before. Taking them out of the drawer to use even for the most mundane tasks feels ceremonial.
Great, they are beautiful, sharp and easy to use with my small hands.
These are the sharpest bonsai scissors I’ve ever used. Wondering why it took me so long to finally buy a good tool for my flowers.
