Hand made and sharpened iron branch and root shears for bonsai branch or root cutting, small general gardening jobs, or herb cutting for woodier herbs like rosemary. They are hand made by 3rd and 4th generation father and son team Takeo and Daisuke Tajika, who are renowned internationally for their shears and scissors. Each pair is unique, and they not only look beautiful, but have a keen cutting edge with a wabi sabi aesthetic.
Dimensions: 90mm (W) x 160mm (L)
As with most Japanese handmade iron products, it is important to keep your shears clean and dry after use.
TAJIKA HARUO Scissor Works was founded in 1938 by Takeji Tajika, who manufactured tailor shears and other special purpose scissors on order. He was succeeded by Haruo Tajika who pioneered many new scissor designs, during a time when scissor makers were still commonplace in Ono, Hyōgo Prefecture. Now 3rd and 4th generation father and son team Takeo and Daisuke Tajika work together to craft a wide variety of scissors individually by hand. Their range includes garden snips, karikomi shears (for topiary style gardening), tailor shears, kitchen scissors and bonsai branch and root cutters. TAJIKA is the family's premium brand and has established itself as a globally recognised name which produces household tools that are not a casual purchase, but become part of a person's life.
