The ideal scissors for Ikebana, the Japanese art of cut flowers arrangement: Okatsune's Ikebana scissors n. 213, with 4.2cm blades, are a must for enthusiasts, but also for those looking for a pair of elegant scissors to treat the flowers to put at home. With a design and ergonomics faithful to tradition and designed in the Sogetsu style, they display the best Made in Japan blades: sharpened one by one and forged by the most expert blacksmiths according to traditional techniques using special Izumo Yusugi steel - the same used for samurai katanas - they are designed to prune twigs and leaves with extraordinary precision, reaching, thanks to the tapered shape, even the most difficult points. The metal processing technique and special materials used, exclusive to the Izumo region, mean that the blades reach an unparalleled hardness (equal to 61/61 on the Rockwell scale, a value never achieved in this area), which is reflected in perfect cuts. Simple to use and to maintain, once cleaned and oiled after intense use, it can be said that they are made to last forever. Perfect also for all topiary works!
