  • Okatsune 207 Bonsai Thinning Shears

    Heavy duty, 35mm blade, heavy duty but lightweight (120g) thinning shears. The pointed razor-sharp blades with their thickness of 3.3 mm are strong enough to cut small branches, and at the same time thin enough to penetrate deep into the bush. This allows you to simply make a clean cut at the most difficult places to reach, without damaging surrounding stems. These shears are also perfect for all the maintenance on your bonsai, like candle pruning, style pruning and maintenance pruning. In addition, these shears are extremely suitable for cutting flowers because of the razor-sharp and pointed blades. These versatile shears can be best positioned between the category pruning shears and thinning shears.

    Technical specifics

    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.
