The blades of these Japanese Ikebana scissors (Ikebana Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time, and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines hardness with special flexibility so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade and does not break.

The blade has been ground in two angles, so it will also smoothly cut through wood and will not unnecessarily damage the plant. Due to the unique shape of the hollow ground blade, the sap flows away from the blade, and the blades will not come apart.

CARE

The scissors are constructed from a few components so that there is little maintenance required. It is recommended to clean the blades after each use. After cleaning, it is recommended to oil the scissors and store moisture free with the cutting blades closed. The blades can very easily be sharpened with the Okatsune whetstone (Okatsune 412).
