Kihachi Curved Topiary Shears are one of the most talked about in our garden product range, especially among topiary professionals worldwide. We are proud to be among the few distributors to offer these shears, which are custom made by Yoshioka Hamono.
Curved Shears Making all the difference
Their ultra sharp blades feature a unique indentation design which is often described as “self-cleaning”. The surface of bottom blade is curved inwardly and the hollow ground blade serves to collect sap, gum and debris. This allows the blades to stay clean resulting in a more efficient cut. Combined with the top-quality “Yasugi Hagane” Japanese steel, these shears stay sharper longer than others. Curved blades are notoriously difficult to make. In addition, the Yasugi Blue Grade Steel used in these shears comes with a hefty price tag even as a raw material. Only master craftsmen like Yoshioka Hamono can make it work and they do the best job in the world. Our users tell us that they snip much less using these Kihachi Curved Topiary Shears, making their job of shaping buxus balls and other topiary designs much easier. And these topiary artists do need to chop hundreds of times!
