Okatsune 301 harvest shears are specially designed for harvesting vegetables and fruit. The curved blade of 25 mm makes these shears with curved blade very suitable for working in a tight space. Use the very sharp shears with the rounded curved blade away from the fruit, and vegetables to prevent damage.
Curved blades with rounded tips allows quick and easy harvesting of fruits. The very sharp curved blade also makes these an ideal choice for de-budding.
The blades of these Japanese harvest shears (Saika 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, even after intensive usage.
The blade has been ground in two angles, so it will also smoothly cut through wood, and will not unnecessarily damage the plant. 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. The Okatsune 301 is not suitable for cutting branches.
