Introducing the Okatsune 101 Pruner, a compact and powerful tool designed to elevate your pruning experience. Crafted with precision and quality in mind, this pruner stands out as the epitome of Japanese craftsmanship.

At a length of 180 mm, the Okatsune 101 Pruner is tailored for those with smaller hands, offering unparalleled comfort and control. Its razor-sharp blades, forged from the finest Japanese steel renowned for its use in crafting Katana swords, effortlessly slice through branches up to 25 mm thick. From shrubs to roses, fruit trees, and creepers, no pruning task is too challenging.

The simplicity of its design ensures optimal ease of use, while its robust yet lightweight construction guarantees durability without compromising maneuverability. The blades, uniquely forged from Izumo Yasugi steel with a remarkable Rockwell hardness of 60.0 to 61.0, maintain their sharpness over prolonged use, delivering clean and precise cuts with minimal effort.

Engineered with a dual-angle ground blade, the Okatsune 101 Pruner smoothly cuts through wood without causing unnecessary harm to the plant. Its hollow ground design efficiently directs sap away from the blade, preventing it from coming apart and ensuring uninterrupted performance. The V-shaped spring evenly distributes cutting load, guaranteeing a smooth closing action.

For maintenance, simply clean the blades after use and oil them before storing in a moisture-free environment with the cutting blades closed. If blade sharpness begins to diminish, easily restore it using the Okatsune 412 whetstone. Additionally, consider pairing your pruner with the optional leather holster, equipped with a belt loop for convenient carrying and extended shears life.
