Straight handle reversible shear designed with a double Sasaba blade meaning both blades are tapered and shaped like a bamboo leaf. This will give greater power when point cutting. The edge is a pure convex Hamaguri (clam shaped) the very best and sharpest when it comes to slide cutting. The wider Sasaba blades allow for effortless slide cutting, and the extra weight of the shear is balanced perfectly so shear control is easy. Made of high grade Cobalt Allow steel, this shear is highly recommended.
