To the serious ikebana practitioner, the clipper (hasami) goes beyond being a mere tool. It is an extension of the hand and becomes part of one’s existence. A special bond forms between clipper and practitioner, deepening as they mature together. An important word of advice: unless you really, really have to, never borrow an ikebana practitioner’s personal clippers. It’s like...you wouldn’t borrow someone else’s wedding ring, right? It’s the same feeling.
The traditional steel ikebana hasami has no spring grip and is just heavy enough to mean business. Black oxide finished to protect against corrosion (but you must still take care of your hasami and keep them dry.) The cuts are clean and precise, even against the sturdiest branches. One pair is probably all you’ll need for a long time.
All our ikebana clippers are made in Japan.
