For more than 400 years, the Banshu region of Japan has been the home of some of the most skilled artisan blacksmiths on earth. That tradition continues today through products like these Tsume Shears, forged by hand from a single piece of Japanese steel using the same techniques that have been passed down for generations. Ideal for cutting fabric, thread, or canvas, the shears are also useful in the kitchen and garden. Each pair is presented in a wooden gift box and wrapped in a red and black cloth.
Japan's Banshu region has been making blades since the 1700s. These Sentei Pruning Shears from Banshu Hamono bring that experience to bear in your garden. The single-edged high carbon steel blade is lightweight and thin, designed for cleanly cutting small branches from bonsai and fruit trees. Each pair is forged and sharpened by hand using traditional methods and arrives wrapped in a Banshu textile.
