Ikebana Ikenobo

Traditionally used scissors for ikebana, the Ikenobo flower scissors should be the only pair you need to consider owning. The curved ends of the handle are called warabi-te and are used for crushing the ends of hard stems to preserve the cut flowers for longer. As well as the acutely angled blades keep the fibres at the cut ends from being compressed, allowing for better water absorption.

Each shear is hand forged and sharpened using traditional methods. As such, each tool has its own variations and irregularity. It´s environmentally friendly, no chemicals have been used when colouring the handles. After use wipe off any water and soil and store it indoors to prevent rusting. Wiping with cutting oil (or sewing machine oil) will help protect the shears particularly if you’re planning on storing them for an extended period. These shears are incredibly sharp but if the blades require sharpening over time, have them professionally sharpened or use a whetstone.

Made in Sanjo Niigata, Japan by Toyama Hamono. A traditional shears manufacturer crafting secateurs and scissors since 1861. Based on the manufacturing methods of Japanese swords. Each tool is stamped with the characters Hidehisa which during the Edo period in Japan represented superior quality and craftsmanship and has become a Toyama Hamono signature.
