    Tobisho

    Tobisho

    Tobisho is a blacksmithing company based in Yamagata, Japan. They focus specifically on producing garden cutlery, like pruning shears. Tobisho's pruning shears and garden scissors and clippers are among the best in the word, with over 200 individual processes going into producing each single pair. Almost all processes are completed by hand, by expert blacksmiths, who quench, temper, sharpen and finish each blade with care. Tobisho's expert blacksmiths polish, adjust and tighten each pair of shears and scissors one-by-one.

    Their nearly 100-years experience producing scissors, shears, pruners, and secateurs makes them unquestionable experts in their field. Yamagata's deep relationship with bladed tools and weapons, which goes back over 500 years when it was Japan's samurai sword capital, means that Tobisho's blacksmiths have been surrounded by the craft their whole lives. Tobisho is proud to carry on the traditional blacksmithing techniques of Yamagata, as representatives of the traditional craft of blade smithing.

    Tobisho has been making exceptionally sharp bypass pruners, pruning shears, scissors and secateurs for generations. Tobisho exclusively uses the highest quality materials, like yasugi aogami blue paper carbon steel, in constructing their tools. You won't be disappointed by Tobisho's quality shears, forged using techniques and wisdom that have been passed down in Yamagata for hundreds of years.
