Ships within 2-6 days


A true collector’s piece. Handmade in Japan, each piece is hand-forged and sharpened using traditional Japanese methods. The traditional techniques inherited from the Edo period produce razor sharpness. Hidehisa shears are environmentally friendly — no chemicals have been used in coloring the steel handles.

A Good Design® award-winner, the Banno Sentei’s handle is designed for ease of grip and maximum force when pruning. The narrow tip is great for hard to reach areas and the thicker base is great for branches and stems. A perfect tool for pruning flowers and houseplants.

After use, wipe off any dirt and plant matter and store it indoors to prevent rusting. Wiping with cutting oil (or sewing machine oil) will help protect the shears, particularly if you’re planning on storing them for an extended period of time. These shears are incredibly sharp, but if the blades require sharpening over time, have them professionally sharpened or use a whetstone sharpener.

Please note: Because of the handmade nature of this item, each tool will have variations and irregularities.
