The Ashinaga Hasami shear is a basic tool for thinning and defoliating bonsai. The Standard Concave Branch Cutter and the Ashinaga shear are generally considered the two most basic Bonsai tools.
This version is a less expensive Ashinaga shear for the serious student. Its laminated construction and nice finish is a good compromise between cost and quality for serious enthusiasts.
Dimensions: About 2 1/8 inch blades, about 7 7/8 inches overall length.
Made in Japan.
