Kadō Japanese flower-cutting snips
Mid weight carbon steel (meaning they can rust) flower snips, strong enough for cutting and trimming fresh and dried woody flower stems, and the traditional tool used for Ikenobo style flower arranging. Not as strong as secateurs, these are very much a flower collecting and arranging tool used for trimming and shaping light stems, and probably a bit too light for heavier duty pruning. Forged of blackened carbon steel, these can rust if not kept oiled, dry, and clean, and will stain on the exposed blades regardless. About 17cm overall length.
