he Okatsune 304 are very light and razor-sharp floral shears with long blade (45 mm) specially designed for picking flowers, and herbs, and deadheading. The pointed, extremely thin blades (2.3 mm) ensure that you can reach even the tightest spaces. The Okatsune 304 is not suitable for cutting hard (woody) stems. For this purpose you can better use the Okatsune 307. Okatsune floral shears are the undisputed number 1 in Japan, the country where its use has been elevated to an art form
The shears are constructed from a few components, so that there is little maintenance required. It is recommended to clean the blades after each use. After cleaning it is recommended to oil the shears, and store moisture free with the cutting blades closed. If you notice that the shears are cutting less well, you can grind them using the Okatsune whetstone (Okatsune 412).
