This pair of Okatsune thinning shears is perfect for thinning and picking vegetables, fruit and, of course, flowers. Its razor-sharp 3.5 cm blades take care of a clean and precise cut enabling you to cut through even the most delicate stems. But even when finely pruning bushes and other plants this pair of Okatsune shears will be the perfect tool.
Because of its pointed blades you can use these shears for very precise work. The pair has properly been enhanced with a large spring. Fool-proof, when used normally it won’t break. Incredibly sustainable. When closed you use a rubber loop to keep the blades together.
Okatsune shears: only the best quality from Japan
The Okatsune shears often look a little basic. Looks, however, can be deceiving. The constructions are so simple because they work. You really don’t need more. Okatsune uses Japanese top-quality steel to manufacture the shears. The same type of carbon steel was used to forge katana swords. So yes, they are that good!
Okatsune has become a pro in hardening the blades. As such the shears will stay sharper a lot longer than your average shears from the hardware store. A lot of attention was also paid to the geometry. As such the shears are amazing to work with.
Maintaining Okatsune pruning shears
Because the blades on this pair of shears were made from carbon steel they are not stainless. As a result it would be a good idea to clean the blades after use and add a drop of oil. A small sacrifice, especially when you know what you get in return. Many people will only understand how good a pair of Okatsune shears actually is after they have used it!
