Japanese Bonsai Scissors - Made in Japan. Our Japanese professional Bonsai Scissors (Bonzai Shears as they are professionally called), by Toyama Hamono are also known as the "Butterfly Scissors" because of its beautiful butterfly-shaped handles. This stunning icon of Japanese design blends form with function in an exceptionally beautiful way. We are proud to present this traditional Japanese garden scissors made exactly the same way as they have been for the last (almost) 300 years. TOYAMA HAMONO was established in Sanjo, Niigata Japan, a town famous for the craft of blacksmithery, in 1861. Their methods are based on the manufacturing methods of Japanease swords (KATANA) and have been hand-making secateurs and shears for almost 160 years. TOYAMA HAMONO enjoys a reputation throughout Japan and the world for producing an excellence in gardening shears. Toyama Hamono's edge-tools are renowned for their beauty, utility and craftsmanship and continue to be forged by hand in Japan. Our traditional Okubo garden scissors not only look and feel perfect; they also provide a cutting sense you won't have experienced before. The contrast between factory-fabricated stainless steel and a hand-forged blade in hardened high-carbon steel really is quite something. Delicate in design and high in quality, these narrow, sharp blades are strong enough to slice through small twigs and all types of flowers stems. The large grip butterfly-shaped handle accommodates gloved hands. Forged by master artisans in Japan.
