A multi-purpose type of scissors used for trimming somewhat thick branches. Most suitable for cutting small branches from bonsai and fruit trees.

The blacksmith industry in the Banshu region in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan was said to have started long ago when a Katana factory was located there. What began as an industry producing straight razors in 1744, now manufactures a variety of products including utility knives, traditional Japanese straight razors, Japanese gripping shears used for cutting thread, pruning shears, and floral shears. Each piece is painstakingly made by hand by skilled craftsmen using the same techniques that have been employed for generations.

Each item is wrapped in an assorted ‘banshu’ fabric and packaged in either a lightweight Paulownia wood or cardboard box.
