Quick Overview

They are very light and razor-sharp floral snips with long blade, designed for picking flowers, herbs and deadheading. These are not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this purpose you would suggest your use the 307 Short nose snips.

The pointed, extremely thin blades (2.3 mm) ensure that you can reach even the tightest spaces. 

You will love these snips.  They are so handy for so many different uses.  Keep them in your kitchen to cut up herbs, cut off zipties from childrens toys, open plastic packaging, like the packets that batteries come in.  Not to mention they make the most wonderful and handy gift!!

The blades of these Japanese floral shears (Mekiri Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 59 to 60. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood, without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines the hardness with a special flexibility, so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade.

The blade has been grounded on two angles, so it will also smoothly cut through wood and will not unnecessarily damage the plant.  Due to the unique shape of the hollow ground blade the sap flows away from the blade and the blades will not come apart. The V-shape of the spring ensures that the cutting load is distributed evenly over the length of the spring making for a soft closing action. The Okatsune 304 is not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this you would better to use the Okatsune 307.
