The Okatsune 306 are professional thinning shears with rounded tip specially designed for cutting very soft stems. The extremely thin blades (2.3 mm) of these shears are the most delicate of all Okatsune thinning shears. The round tip prevents damage to fruit, flowers, and hands. The shears are also suitable for cuttings, thinning, and cutting of rope, and paper. The Okatsune 306 is not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this you can should use the Okatsune 307. 


The blades of these Japanese thinning shears (Mekiri Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 59 to 60. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood, without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines the hardness with a special flexibility, so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade.

 

The wider, single sided sharpened blades are stiffer than the pointed version, and provide a strong point. Due to the unique shape of the hollow ground blade the sap flows away from the blade, and the blades will not come apart. The V-shape of the spring ensures that the cutting load is distributed evenly over the length of the spring making for a soft closing action.
