Hand forged by 3rd generation master blacksmith Takashi Yoshioka, whose forte is to produce pruners of supreme functionality that give a unique “cutting sensation” of sublime pleasure.
The thin surgically sharp cutting edge makes easy work of thick branches. Yoshioka San’s unique quenching method imbues toughness to the hard slim blade that is further protected from chipping by a receiving blade which is shaped to shield the super sharp cutting edge. The soft handles provide cushioning for comfortable extended use.
The most common reaction, on first use of this essential tool, is of awe and unbelievable surprise at the sharpness and gentle ease with which it makes light work of the indispensable process of pruning. Furthermore, a special finish on the back of both blades reduces clogging by tree sap and wood tar making prolonged use stress free.
With a pruning range of up to 15mm of raw wood, the receiving blade has a small tip extension to guard the fine point of the cutting edge from breaking or chipping and making it difficult to cut rope strings (strings tied to posts, etc.).
Uses: Various pruning work for plants, flowers, bonsai, gardening, orchards, and fresh flowers.
Other advantages: Easy to remove screws and spring. You can adjust the opening and re-sharpen simply by removing the spring and/or locking nut. Secure handle lock for safe storing.
