The Okatsune 301 is the pure essence of the harvest shears:

-Razor-sharp, always with a clean cut

-Simple design for optimal ease of use

-Ultra lightweight, and yet particularly robust

The blades of these Japanese harvest shears (Saika Basami) are uniquely forged from the finest IZUMO YASUGI steel, and have a very high Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0. This hardness ensures that the blades stay sharper for longer, and always make a clean and precise cut in the wood. However, soft metal in the core of the blade make the shears tough. This toughness makes sure that the cutting blade always fits well on the counter-blade and does not break, not even under heavy load.

The blade has been grinded 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 making for a soft closing action. The Okatsune 304 is not suitable for cutting branches.
