Item details

Favoured by followers of the popular Koryu style of ikebana flower arrangement these hand-forged shears will happily cut any flower for any purpose. They will easily handle woody stems or light branches as well as beautifully cut the daintiest of stems.

The special forging process these blades undergo lends them an exceptional hardness. They will stay sharp much longer than other shears - years after buying them you'll be cutting stems cleanly and effortlessly without a second thought.

Two handcrafted blue-2-steel blades, carefully calibrated to slice along their cutting edges, right to the very tip. There's art in that.

Total length: 150mm
Weight in hand: 188 grams / 6.6 oz

We ship all purchases by Japan Post EMS, which is very quick and efficient.

All shipped items are insured and a tracking number will be supplied. Some countries apply customs duty to imports and these duties are the responsibility of the buyer. All parcels are accurately marked as 'merchandise' and a product value listed for customs purposes.

We keep many items in stock in Hiroshima, but some orders we will bring up from Tanegashima. In those cases products are usually shipped on the third day from order, or sometimes the next day - it depends a bit on the time of order and the island ferry.

On receipt of your order we will write to let you know the status of your order and an expected shipping day and time.


We accept all major credit cards through our PayPal credit-card payment facility. PayPal members may also choose to pay with their PayPal account balance. Payment data is secure, private and is not shared with the owners of this Etsy store.

Returns & exchanges

We have a generous returns policy.

If things don't work out, any item may be returned in unused condition for any reason. We request the return of your purchased item within thirty days of initial dispatch, which gives you ample time to send it back to us.

You have to remember though that if you cut anything with your purchase it is yours to keep. This is very important!

We cannot and do not accept the return of items that have been used or 'tried'. By all means hold the product in your hand to feel the balance and heft, but please understand that cutting with it is the point of no return.
