Snips – Bubinga

Pruning snips made of steel and bubinga wood. Handle with wooden inlay is the peak of the snips range. The oiled wooden bubinga inlay has been exquisitely crafted to seamlessly fit into the polished steel handle. The beautiful inlay work of the handle requires special techniques and skills. Only a few of those can be produced in a day even by master craftsmen. When looked after the snips rarely need sharpening and will be with you for a lifetime of pruning. Designed for general garden use. Ideal for pruning roses, flowers and houseplants.

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.
