Ikebana Artist and Instructor
Using this Kenzan for a basic Sogetsu arrangement, I found that the two slanted outer rows of needles facilitate the insertion of flowers and branches at precise inclinations with ease.
Moreover, the longer needles ensure a firm grip on the plant material. Also, the kenzan is heavy and doesn't tumble over even with heavier branches.
I picked the longer nail Kenzan and look, works wonderfully. If you like working with sticks and branches, go for the longer nails for a better anchorage.
