A bouquet cut from your flower beds starts with these classic shears

Someone in your life has been gardening with the scissors from the kitchen junk drawer. They can get by, sure, but we’re seeing these scissors in their place: a great surprise, the most thoughtful of gifts, and, like late winter days that stretch just a bit more into the twilight, a reminder that happy days in the dirt will soon be here again. Also nice: they work equally well in the left or right hand.

Since 1861, Toyama Hamono has been hand-forging metal tools like these gardening shears, using methods based on Japanese sword-making.

Details: 

  • Sharp blades and the ability to hold the handles where they are most comfortable, not to mention good looks
  • Made in Japan
  • Made of forged steel
  • 7 ¾” long
  • Care: After each use, wipe the blades so they are clean and dry. Give them a coat of linseed or tung oil before you put them away for the winter.
