KST304 Floral shears Okatsune 304 with long blade suitable for soft stems

The Okatsune 304 are very light and razor-sharp floral shears with long blade (45 mm) specially designed for picking flowers, and herbs, and deadheading. The pointed, extremely thin blades (2.3 mm) ensure that you can reach even the tightest spaces. The Okatsune 304 is not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this purpose you can better use the Okatsune 307. Okatsune floral shears are the undisputed number 1 in Japan, the country where its use has been elevated to an art form. Find out why! 


The Okatsune 304 is the pure essence of the floral 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 floral shears (Mekiri Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 59 to 60. 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.

 

The blade has been grinded 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. The Okatsune 304 is not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this you can better use the Okatsune 307.
