Fantastic for box clipping and detailed topiary work

 

If you get excited by quality, you'll love these: Tobisho are a small family business deep in the mountains of Yamagata, an area famous for the quality of its steel. All their tools are drop forged (bashed with a very heavy pneumatic hammer) out of amazing quality steel, they have an incredible weight and balance, and great attention to detail. The Japanese name, hakaribasami, translates as leafcutting scissors, and it's crucial not to cut old, hard growth, just soft green stuff. Long blades and spring action make clipping a doddle.
