"Pruning shears | S type" are the best scissors for cutting thick branches such as thick branches and branches of bonsai. It is also recommended for those who decorate branches in their rooms and those who prune garden trees. Thick branches can be easily cut off when removing unnecessary branches or when cutting back branches to promote water uptake. Without much effort, the branches are easily cut off with a pleasant “shaking” sound.

"S type" refers to the shape of the handle. It is called so because the curved shape looks like the letter S, and this shape is the result of many years of study to make the scissors easier to operate, less tiring, and more comfortable to hold. You will know its true value when you hold it in your hand.

High-quality tools can feel good every time you use them. The commitment to tools that can be said to last a lifetime will lead your hobby to a deeper and more enjoyable world.

"Yamagata Cutlery" is Hand-made and hand-polished.

These scissors are hand-made by hand-polishing. There are many scissors with similar shapes, but most of them are mass-produced by mechanical polishing. The workshop that makes these scissors also has a mechanical polishing machine, but it continues to sleep in the corner of the workshop. "I don't like the traces of mechanical polishing, so I don't use it," the craftsman said. In this workshop, the backside of the blade, which can be said to be the life of scissors, is twisted to minimize the contact surface when cutting. Thanks to this technology, a comfortable "good cut" is achieved when cutting branches, and the sharpness lasts longer. This unique technique has been praised in the industry as "Yamagata pruning shears never lose their sharpness".

By the way, this twisting process cannot be achieved by mechanical polishing, but at first glance (to the untrained eye), the difference between hand polishing and mechanical polishing cannot be seen. However, when you use it, the difference is clear, and you will be reminded that God is in the details.

(Yamagata City, Yamagata Prefecture, has one of the few remaining blacksmithing industries in Japan. The origin of Yamagata cutlery goes back to the first year of Enbun (about 620 years ago), when it flourished as a village of swordsmiths. The techniques that have been developed are still used in the current scissors making.)

[Precautions for use]
◯ Rust on the cutting edge is the biggest cause of deterioration in sharpness and usability. After use, wipe off dirt and water well and store. Regularly apply sewing machine oil to the front and back of the blade, and occasionally to the crimped area to maintain sharpness.
