These forged carbon steel utility shears can be used in the garden, kitchen, office or studio. Chinese craftsmen originally created these as bonsai scissors hundreds of years ago. I use it for my paper and washi, as well as a prop for pictures =)
Thanks to their simple yet useful symmetrical design, they can be used by both right and left handed craftspeople.
Although they were traditionally known for pruning small shrubs, we have found they are useful for nearly every task, including cutting weed cloth, harvesting herbs and flowers, and cutting twine.
