We dig the unique, exotic quality of everything Kikuichi crafts in Japan-- and these shears are no exception! We simply had to make them available for sale. They can be used for so much more than flower arranging... so go for it! With the Koryu style of flower arrangement, these pro-grade shears are beauts; hand-forged, sharp laminated carbon steel blades cut without compromising the stem. 6-3/4" overall length, 1-3/4" blades, 6.6 oz. weight-- easy to wield for novices and pros alike. Made in Japan.
