Okatsune is a Japanese brand that specializes in forging high-quality shears and scissors out of premium Japanese steel. Their products are famous for their quality and reasonable price in Japan and abroad.
These hedge shears were crafted using razor-sharp, high-quality Japanese steel, with natural oak handles. They feature red and white handle tips to make them easy to find, even in low-light.
This 205 model has a medium-length 175mm blade, and long 500mm handles, coming in at a total length of 745mm - which makes it ideal not only for trimming hedges, but also for light topiary work and other trimming and shearing in the garden.
They are designed to be able to cut even the bottom of the hedge without you having to bend down. Their direct-action blade, unlike a lot of handheld shears, allows them to cut cleanly and efficiently, and the longer handles means it takes less physical effort.
After use, clean blades well with a dry cloth. To extend the life of the blades, apply blade oil to prevent rust. This light, regular maintenance allows them to maintain their sharpness for years to come.
