We spent ages looking at Ikebana scissors - Okatsune alone make 5 different models - and eventually chose these, from the Ikenobo school of flower arranging. Perfectly weighted, their short, broad blades are strong enough to cut thick branches but accurate enough for detailed work. Clever wire cutting notch.
- 1/5" blades (4cm)
- 6.5" long (16.5cm)
Niwaki Tip: Look after your tools - clean them, dry them, and coat the blades in a bit of Camellia oil after use.
