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.
Care: Wipe the blades with a soft cloth, then oil with vegetable or machine oil to prevent rust.
ABOUT ASANO MOKKOUSHO
We chose to bring you these specific Japanese tools because we admire the maker’s 70+ years of expertise, extraordinary craftsmanship, and use of high-quality materials. Family owned since 1950, Asano Mokkousho was born of the union between Teisuke Asano, a farmer’s son, and his wife, Sakae Sasagawa, daughter of a Tokyo manufacturer. Asano wanted to make farmers’ lives easier by designing and crafting high-quality tools while city dweller Sakae wanted to share her love of nature. They melded their rural and metropolitan values and together founded Asano Mokkousho. Seven decades later the company exports a broad range of authentic Japanese gardening tools all over the world. Designers and human engineers continuously refine the company’s original designs to reflect the needs of the user, ensuring each tool is as comfortable to use as it is efficient.
