• Shrub shears Okatsune 217 short handled medium bladed B001HYO9WI
Okatsune 217 is the pure essence of the shrub shear: - Razor-sharp, always with a clean cut - Simple design for optimal ease of use - Ultra lightweight, and yet particularly robust Okatsune shrub shears are very user friendly, and a pleasure to use. You will notice that you can very accurately shape your hedge with ease. The handles of Japanese white oak are .well-known to absorb vibration, therefore working with these shears will be a very pleasant experience. The combination of the 175 mm long blade, and the handles of 300 mm ensures a perfect balance, and sufficient strength that you need to easily cut the hedge, or prune the branches. The blades of these Japanese shrub shears (Karikomi Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood, without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines the hardness with a special flexibility, so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade, even after intensive usage. Short model shrub shears with short wooden handles of 30 cm, and a medium-long razor-sharp blade of 175 mm. This short, lightweight model is ideal for topiary boxwood or the Japanese garden (o-karikomi), because you are close to the work. Also for pruning in tight spaces the 217 is ideal. The blade of the 217 boxwood shears is 30 mm longer than the blade of the 216 boxwood shears. This has the advantage that you can penetrate deeper into the crop, and cut faster with large surfaces. Okatsune shrub shears are the undisputed number 1 in Japan, the country where pruning has been elevated to an art form. The blades are very easy to grind with the Okatsune whetstone (Okatsune 412). A leather sheath for the blade is included.
