The Okatsune 103 is the pure essence of the pruners:

- Razor-sharp, always with a clean cut

- Simple design for optimal ease of use

- Particularly robust, yet lightweight

The blades of this Japanese pruner (Sentei Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0. Therefore, the blades stay sharp for a long time and they consistently give a clean and precise cut in the wood, without giving much effort. Furthermore, Okatsune combines the hardness with a special flexibility, so that the cutting blade always aligns with the counter blade, even after intensive usage.

The blade has been ground in two angles, so it will also smoothly cut through wood, and will not unnecessarily damage the plant. Due to the unique shape of the hollow ground blade the sap flows away from the blade, and the blades will not come apart. The V-shape of the spring ensures that the cutting load is distributed evenly over the length of the spring which guarantees a smooth closing.

The handles are covered in red and white grips for comfort and because the red is highly visible in daylight, whilst the white can be seen more easily at night - especially useful for those who enjoy gardening by moonlight should that kind of romance appeal.

The blades are very easy to grind with the Okatsune whetstone (Okatsune 412). The shear features a locking system that can be operated with one hand. Do not forget to order a leather holster at the same time. The holster with belt loop allows you to safely carry your pruner with you if you're not using it, but want to have close at hand. Furthermore, the holster also provides for a longer life of your shears.
