Japanese swords's tradition, applied to gardening: Okatsune's snippers n. 307, with shorter 3.5cm blades, are also a reference point for all Japanese gardeners, in every respect. Designed with the best ergonomics and colored to make them easily traceable in the green (not to mention that red and white together symbolize happiness), they display the best blades you could wish for: sharpened one by one and forged by the most expert blacksmiths using traditional techniques using steel special Izumo Yusugi - the same used for samurai's katanas - they are designed to prune even the most woody branches, effortlessly, reaching, thanks to the tapered shape, even the most difficult points. The metal processing technique and special materials used, exclusive to the Izumo region, ensure that the blades reach an unparalleled hardness (equal to 61/61 on the Rockwell scale, a value never achieved in this field), which is reflected in perfect cuts. Simple to use and to maintain, once cleaned and oiled after intense use, we can say that they are made to last forever. Number 1 in Japan.
