Traditional Japanese tools are not stainless. The same thing is true today as in years gone by: the best tool blades are made of carbon steel, which simply is not stainless. However, it requires only a little care to keep them from getting rusty. Just dry them after use! From time to time they need to receive a smear of oil.

No blade will remain sharp for ever. To sharpen these tools, use our Japanese Waterstones. To cut branches of your garden trees we recommend Japanese pruning saws!

"HIDEHISA" Ikebana Shears
Featuring top professional quality and durability, these shears are hand forged! They are not of laminated steel, but rather of YCS3-Steel, which permits them to be hardened to 63 HRC. The hardness provides a very sharp, long-lasting cutting edge, and the steel is strong enough to take years and years of daily use. It is so tough in fact, that the shears can be forged thinner than most others, and so weigh only 138 grams. These shears are designed for relatively heavy work on thicker branches and harder woods.

"HIDEHISA" Thinning Shears
These hand forged, professional-quality shears are not of laminated steel, but of YC3S-Steel, which permits the blades to be hardened to 63 on the HRC scale. The hardness provides a long-lasting razor edge, and the steel is tough enough to allow Hidehisa to forge a lighter, thinner body - only 155 g! Designed for flowers and small branches, these shears are also very well suited to harvesting fruits such as apples or wine grapes, anything up to a branch thickness of 5 mm! More ...

"HIDEHISA" Trimming Shears
These professional quality shears are not made of laminated steel, but hand-forged from YCS3-Steel. This steel allows the blades to be hardened to 63 HRC, but is tough enough to permit a relatively fine body that weighs in at only 285 g, and yet will stand up to daily use year in and year out. Unsurpassed for boxwwod trimming and for general pruning. If you work just once with these shears, you will never want to use any others! More ...
