    Okatsune Hand Pruners

    I learned about this brand of pruner from an article on pruning in Fine Gardening. I can see why the author considered this brand his favorite. They are the sharpest pruners I have ever used and am very pleased with every aspect of this product.

    These are by far the best pruners I have ever used. I had Felco but once I bought these I will never buy anything else.

    I wanted a high quality pruner which this definitely is. It's unbelievable how sharp the blades are.

    Best Pruner Ever

    wrote ():

    I purchased the Okatsune because I have smaller hands. I have no need to sharpen it after owning for 2 years, so I bought my daughter a pair too. We both use them all season long in our gardens, they flow smoothly and dependably, and I have no use now for my other half dozen pair sitting in the shed.

    I've tried many, many pruners over the past 30 years of gardening. This is by far the best out there. I highly recommend it.

    Great for fine work!

    I used Felco pruners happily for years working on large shrubs and small trees but most of my work is smaller now so I want a less bulky cutting tool. I've been using Okatsune shears for a few years now and I'm very happy with the quality. They'll take on a big branch, too.

    Razor sharp out of the box

    I bought these hand shears for my wife who has small hands and some joint pain. She has tried many different types and brands in the pass with most of them being too big for her hands or just hard to use. It's January so she hasn't used them outside yet, but she said they fit her hand well and the spring tension was not overwhelming. I couldn't let the lack of vegetation deter my curiosity about how sharp Japanese shears could be, so I did the paper test. Holding one handle like a knife, the beveled edge slices right through paper just like those Ginsu knife infomercials. We're looking forward to trying them outside and we'll post an update of how well they fared against our raspberry crop.
