Ikenobo shears are designed with a handle style called a warabi and the blades are designed to make fine cuts which is required for flower arrangements to allow the flowers to easily absorb water. Also, the rounded handle (the bottom of the handle) can be used to crush a flower stem to improve water absorption (this method is used to expose the fibers of the stem to encourage water absorption).
Genzo series are produced by Genzo Hamono Manufacturing Co. located in Niigata prefecture. They come with a strong blade and hold up its edge a long time but requires the edge to be wiped clean and dry after use to prevent rust. The shears comes with a leather blade cover.
