MERAKI FLORAL TOOLS

Developed using 100-year-old Japanese craftsmanship, Meraki floral and gardening shears (owned by Jenny Thomasson!) are uniquely designed for precise cuts that will not crush stems. Their carbon steel blades are fluoropolymer-coated for easy cleaning and rust resistance by fluororesin processing. These Japanese flower scissors are both ergonomic, ambidextrous, and made to be accommodating for all hand sizes. Each handle and blade are made of one entire piece of carbon steel, paired together with non-slip "D" handles that allow you to grip the tool securely. Meraki shears should be a part of your essential toolbox when thinking of floral tools, floral clippers, garden shears, pruning shears, florist scissors, trimmers, cutters, pruners, snippers, nippers, or even hedge clippers.
