Our “Kihachi” Garden Shears are robust and versatile. Their 270mm blades feature a unique indentation design. 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. This, combining with the top quality “Yasuki Hagane” Japanese steel, is one of the reasons these shears stay sharper longer than others. These shears have a hardened steel blade allowing them to cut into tougher stems than the Kenshin Shears.
These Kihachi Garden Shears are made of high quality “blue grade” Yasuki Hagane Japanese steel developed by Hitachi Steel. The shears come from one of the most renowned cities for hand crafted steel products in the world – Miki in western Japan. The artisan manufacturer “Yoshioka Edged-Tool Works” has been testing and polishing their skills and knowledge since 1946.
