Okatsune shrub shears are very user friendly, and a pleasure to use. The handles of Japanese white oak are well-known to absorb vibration, therefore working with these shears will be a very pleasant experience. The combination of the 175 mm long blade, and the handles of 300 mm ensures a perfect balance, and sufficient strength that you need to easily cut the hedge, or prune the branches.


The blades of these Japanese shrub shears (Karikomi Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0. 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, even after intensive usage.
