Okatsune Famous Bypass Shears 8"
Okatsune makes some of the best tools (if not the best tools) in the world and these super sturdy and sharp bypass shears are no exception.
I always have my trusty red and white 8"ones at hand (if my hand were smaller, I'd have the 7" ones), and use them for heavy bonsai branches and roots, and in the garden
The red and white is a clever way to find them against any background (for example soil underneath a garden shrub)
Okatsune Masters Grade Bypass Shears cut like butter and last a lifetime (or more).
8" Made in Japan by Okatsune, one of very best hand tool makers in the world
