The Tatara Steel Manufacturing Method is a process unique to Japan that has a history of over a thousand years. The blades and handle of the BB200-Y Pruning Shears are made of high-quality cutlery steel and forged using this method.
Hidehisa steel from Sanjo, premium steel from Japan, embodies the sensibility and techniques cultivated for over a century. Skilled artisans polish the blades to produce a consistent, light and smooth friction between the blades when opened and closed.
The wide, rounded handles are designed to withstand the force required to chop thick branches. They're made ergonomically so that the palm's strength may be efficiently conveyed to the blade tip.
The blades stay sharp even when cutting for extended periods, making the garden experience even more enjoyable. No other shears will satisfy after you've tried them.

We got this for our daughter in law but snuck a look anyway. High quality steel and feels very good in the hand. Leather sheath makes sense and the box it comes in is beatiful.
