Pruning Shears 18cm by Banshu Hamano

The single-edged pruning shears are a must-have in any serious gardener's repertoire of tools. Lightweight and relatively thin the scissors make clean cuts without leaving any unsightly fibers behind. The edges are thinly tapered for pruning and other meticuluously detailed work on trees which works most suitably for cutting small branches from bonsai and fruit trees.

A multi-purpose type of scissors used for picking and trimming somewhat thick branches.

Each piece is hand forged and sharpened using traditional methods. As such, each tool has its own variations and irregularity.

Banshu is a region of Japan that produces various professional-grade and home-use blades. These blades include the classic utility knife; the traditional Japanese razor, used by barbers and geisha alike; the nigiri basami gripping shears, used in thread cutting and artisanal craft making; traditional pruning shears, used by gardeners for generations; beauticians’ shears; cutting shears; culinary shears; and floral shears. The Banshu Hamono brand is a collection of the very finest of these products.

Care Instructions:

These scissors are made with high carbon steel.  Like all carbon steel tools/knives, they can rust if not cared for properly.  Please make sure to wipe them clean and dry after use.  If you're planning on storing them for an extended period of time, we recommend oiling them with camellia oil or vegetable oil.

Please handle scissors with care.
