Taira San forges these minimalist pruning scissors in his tiny forge in Sanjo the way he always has, hand laminating Shirogami white paper steel blades to the softer jigane handles. They're popular among younger gardeners keen to strip things down to the basics - hipster gardeners if you like. Whilst they may not be as user friendly as other options, they connect you closer to the tree than anything else out there, and demand a certain discipline and focus that some find appealing.


  • Shirogami white paper steel blades laminated by hand 

Niwaki Tip: If you're really hardcore, you sling these over your belt, but we find they fit well in the Single Holster.
