Manufactured in Japan, these blades are known to keep their sharpness after years of use. They can be used for cutting through tomato vines and bonsai branches with no problem. With the right care (perhaps a few drops of mineral oil after use) they will last and last. A strong spring between the handles enables the blades to return to the open position quickly. Not only this but hand fatigue is vastly reduced as you’re doing half the work. Fast, efficient snipping becomes a breeze!
The plastic coated handles fit nicely in the hand and the smooth movement of the blades make using these scissors a joy (as far as scissor use goes!). With 45mm of cutting surface, the blades can reach in between small gaps for accurate snipping. Lastly, there is a rubber loop on the hand grip that slides over the other handle. This keeps the scissors closed, protecting the blades.
