This scissors is most typical and popular gardening scissors, often used for plants with diameter of 1cm (about 0.5in). The shape of the scissors accounts for when it cuts plants so that the branch or stem is not damaged by being pinched in between. Its characteristic is that it does not have springs, allowing to be used for a long period at a time. Yasuki Aogami Steel is known as a very fine steel as the upgraded version of Yasuki Shirokami Steel, wear resistant; therefore, its blade lasts a long time. The decent weight of the scissors is for a clean cut when snipping. Easy maintenance.
