Okubo type is the most common and traditional gardening shears. It is used in a wide range of fields such as pruning of the garden and bonsai, and it can cut to branches of about 10 mm. 

1.  Correct Use

  • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
  • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
  • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
  • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres
  • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don't overdo it (shears are not loppers)
  • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts

2. Keeping Them Clean:

  • Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with warm water
  • Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place
