The Tatara Steel Manufacturing Method is a process unique to Japan that has a history of over a thousand years. The BB200-Y Pruning Shears' blades, as well as the handle, are made of quality cutlery steel, which is forged using that technique.
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 crafted in anticipation of the force used when cutting thick branches. They are ergonomically designed so that the strength of the palm can be efficiently communicated to the blade tip.
The sharpness lasts to reduce fatigue even when cutting for extended periods. Once experienced, no other shears will do.

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.
