Ultimate Shears Gift Set
These Okatsune shears are our favourite – they are lightweight, with lovely long blades that balance nicely with the handles, making pruning a pleasure. (To be fair, when is pruning not a pleasure…?)
In this Ultimate gift set you will get:
A sharpening stone.
A bottle of camellia oil to preserve the blades.
The steel blades have a hardness of 60-61 HRD, which for the tool buffs amongst you (and there are a lot!) is the blade hardness measured on the Rockwell Hardness C scale.
Japanese shears have far fewer moving parts than a pair of shears you might get from a garden centre in the UK, which means there is less to go wrong with them. They concentrate on the essentials in the Far East – amazing blades, smooth handles, soft action. The clip clip clip noise as the handles meet is such a pleasant sound, up there with the dawn chorus in late spring for us, as it means you are using the shears just right – a smooth and fluid clipping action, gracefully gliding across the hedge or shrub.
This pruning is all made easier with a pair of Japanese shears. Now we offer them in an ULTIMATE GIFT SET so that you can treat them as the heirloom products they truly are – buy adding this to your cart, you get the shears, a whetstone to get them back to factory sharpness and camellia oil for keeping them free of rust.
The whetstone and camellia oil are traditional accessories to the shears, making this a perfect present for someone who loves to use great tools and keep them in tip top shape.
