Ikenobo Garden Scissors

$ 150

Prolong your flowers’ vibrancy with classic Japanese garden scissors

Traditionally used as scissors for ikebana and other forms of flower arrangement, scissors of this type have a long history in Japan. The curved pieces at the end of the handle are called warabi te; they are used for crushing the ends of hard stems in order to preserve cut flowers for longer. Acutely angled blades keep the fibers at cut ends from being compressed, allowing for better water absorption.


Over the more than 200 years since its establishment in 1792, Kiya has been offering knives and a variety of tools used in daily life at its location in historic Nihombashi, Tokyo.
