Nishigaki is a relatively young company when compared to some other Japanese gardening tool brands. They were founded in 1974 in Miki, Hyogo, but their tools are widely stocked in many home centers, hardware and agricultural stores across Japan.

They've devoted themselves to the development of new products that will have a positive and useful impact of everyone's lives, such as high-branch pruning shears and pipe-cutting power tools. Their most popular products are their shears and scissors, including specialty scissors for Japanese ikebana flower arranging, and general gardening shears, made from high-grade pressed cutlery steel.
