Our “Kihachi” Garden Shears are robust and versatile. Their 240-270mm 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 “Yasugi 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.
