Designed and produced entirely in Japan, the country that invented the ancient art of ikebana, these solid Steel Ikebana Scissors are indispensable tools for floral arranging and ikebana. The elegant handles and extra sharp blades are forged from a special kind of Japanese steel by metal artisans in Tsubame-Sanjo, an area famous for its metal works and wood works. This steel lends itself to exceptional sharpness and rust resistance.
Those interested in ikebana, the Japanese art of rigorously crafted natural arrangements, will find a welcome ally in Asano Mokkousho’s specially made — and deceptively simple — ikebana scissors. An acute-angle blade, made from high-quality Japanese steel, ensures that stems are cut cleanly, without harming natural fibers, which ensures a longer life in the vase; the satin-finish handle is similarly both beautiful and functional. “It not only looks good,” Rieko says, “but is also slip-resistant for safety and peace of mind, and will not slip off unexpectedly during work.”
