The Ashinaga bonsai scissors are the perfect every-day pruning shears for me. With enough strength to cleanly cut lignified hardwood with ease, while being fine enough for delicate pruning of shohin trees. These scissors are professionally sharp, cleanly cutting paper where other tools rip. Avoiding torn tissue when pruning reduces die-back and improves callus formation, so my trees continue to develop rapidly. The Yasugi steel Ashinaga bonsai scissors are a delight to use, definitely my go-to shearsYouTube

Yasugi Steel Ashinaga Bonsai Scissors 8"(200mm)
Overall excellent except some blemishes on the finish.
I am a commercial cannabis cultivator and have had a hard time finding pruners that cut well and stay sharp over thousands of cuts. I can say these pruners are the best I have found. A weekly touch-up and they're like new out of the box.
