Japanese Hedge Shears

Japanese Hedge Shears

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.

Japanese Hedge Shears Blades 180 mm
Steel one layer

The blades of these Japanese Hedge Shears are made of solid steel (as opposed to laminated steel, as is often the case), and are double heat-treated for a more flexibility and stability. With these kinds of tools, it is easy to make a mistake and bend the blades. But these shears are designed to spring back into shape. Handles in Japanese White Oak. Maximum branch width 12 mm!
Delivered with a blade cover in artificial leather.

Japanese Hedge Shears Blades 195 mm
Blue Steel (Aogami) two layers

The blades of these Japanese hedge shears are forged in two-layers laminated steel. A relatively thin layer of very hard, stay-sharp “Aogami” steel is forge welded to a softer, tougher backing steel - a traditional method often used for Japanese blades. The hardness of the “Aogami” is around 64 to 65 HRC - unbelievably hard for hedge shears. Handles in Japanese white oak. Maximum branch thickness 12 mm!
Delivered with blade guard in artificial leather.

Diese Heckenschere besticht durch 2 Eigenschaften:

  1. Die ungewöhnliche Länge der Klinge von 300 mm erhöht die Reichweite pro Schnitt erheblich.
  2. Eine überragende Schneidqualität macht es zu einem Vergnügen, damit zu arbeiten.

Beim Schließen der Klingen erklingt ein satter Reibton, ausgelöst durch die zunehmende Spannung der Klingen je näher sie dem geschlossenen Zustand kommen. Dies ist ein untrügliches Merkmal hervorragender Herstellungstechnik bei Scheren. Die Schnittgüte ist durch diese beim Schließen entstehende Spannung überragend. Der niedriglegierte Aogami-Stahl mit sehr hoher Standzeit ist mit weicherem Trägermaterial schmiedeverschweißt, eine traditionelle Methode beim Herstellen von Klingen. Hergestellt in der Schmiede Yoshiaka Hamono in Ono City.
