Product Description

Ikenobo style scissors for traditional Japanese flower arranging. The short, broad blades are strong enough for woody cuts in hard stems. They take a bit of getting used to, but if the discipline of ikebana is something you aspire to, it’s well worth it.

KA-70 Carbon Steel

Made in Sanjo, Japan

Tips: Keep clean with a Crean Mate, and oil after use with Camellia Oil.

Care: Most of Niwaki's sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…

1. Correct Use:

Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused

2. Keeping Them Clean:

Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water

Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place

3. Keeping Them Sharp:

New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge.
