JAPANESE SECATEUR SHEARS Large Model or KI BASAMI
Nothing can replace this typical Japanese designed tool. These secateur shears, in very high quality carbon-steel for use with just one hand, is hand-forged from single blocks of steel. Furthermore, its extreme elegance makes it a work of art in itself.
Its incredibly light weight, its design and its ergonomics make it extremely comfortable to use and give it incomparable cutting efficiency.
Its handles, with their non-slip covering, offer increased ease and safety in use, both when wearing gloves and with your bare hands - safety increased even more by the presence of a guard that makes it even easier to handle.
Its long blades make it an ideal tool for regularly pruning what are poetically called “cloud” masses of vegetation on niwaki.
The tool must only be used on the year’s growth that is still green and no bigger than 5mm in diameter. It must not be used for cutting lignified wood as this will damage its blades.
