Product Details

Useful for making flat or long, straight cuts in topiary, these hedge and boxwood shears have 190mm long blades allowing them to cut flat surfaces faster and more acurately than shorter bladed shears. The blades are hand forged from blue paper steel and feature a layer of softer iron forge welded over the top to give added strength and support. Blue paper steel is made from a very pure iron ore with carbon, tungsten and chromium added. This gives a steel that is hard, tough and durable and takes a fine, razor sharp edge; ideal for cutting tools that will be used for hard punishing work. The back of the blades are hollow ground to reduce friction when cutting and to facilitate sharpening as blue paper steel is hard and takes longer to sharpen and will retain its edge longer than a softer steel. The two halves of the shears are held together by an adjustable nut and bolt allowing them to be tightened and loosened as required by the user. These shears have Japanese white oak handles. White oak is a slow growing hardwood with a straight yet attractive grain and is ideal for these type of handles as it is very strong. The handles are unfinished to offer the user a firm, non-slip grip. These are excellent shears and perfect for any discerning gardener with hedges or shrubs to trim. Made in Japan.
