These mini sized bonsai scissors are designed ideally for use on small trees such as mame and shohin. Normal scissors often become cumbersome when working on smaller trees and they may in fact damage twigs and branches if extreme care is not taken.
Although small in size these mini sized scissors do not sacrifice comfort of handling in any way. Their handles are carefully crafted so holding them is much easier than you might imagine.
The blade length is 40mm.
As with all our Kaneshin tools, these mini bonsai scissors are handmade by highly skilled Japanese craftsmen. Each tool is boxed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

In the past, craftsmen used coloured paper to distinguish various steels. Back then they used blue, white and yellow colour paper. This is the origin of the naming of steels which is still held till today. It does not refer in any way to the colour of the metal.
