The Okatsune 207 is the pure essence of the thinning shears:

 

- Razor-sharp, always with a clean cut

- Simple design for optimal ease of use

- Ultra lightweight, and yet particularly robust

 

The blades of these Japanese bonsai shears (bonsai Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60 to 61. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood, without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines the hardness with a special flexibility, so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade, even after intensive usage.

 

The blade has been ground in two angles, so it will also smoothly cut through wood, and will not unnecessarily damage the plant. Due to the unique shape of the hollow ground blade the sap flows away from the blade, and the blades will not come apart. The V-shape of the spring ensures that the cutting load is distributed evenly over the length of the spring making for a soft closing action.

Maintenance

The shears are constructed from a few components, so that there is little maintenance required. It is recommended to clean the blades after each use. After cleaning it is wise to oil the shears, and store moisture free with the cutting blades closed. If you notice that the shears are cutting less well, you can grind them using the Okatsune whetstone (Okatsune 412).
