These scissors are always on the belt of Japanese gardeners
Their tapered tips are very practical for threading them between thin and tight branches such as on maples or azaleas. They are also used to cut the palm rope (shuronawa) when making traditional bamboo fences. Their rounded shape allows them to fall naturally to hand.
Without spring, they are manipulated with the middle finger inside the handle and the index finger outside.
Symbol of the profession of landscape gardener, they are offered at the birth of boys in the families of landscapers and arboriculturists...
