Taira Ueki Garden Scissors

Hand-forged, hand-laminated garden scissors from Taira san, in a slightly milder Yellow Paper Steel than his preferred Blue Paper, resulting in a tougher pair of scissors that will put up with a degree more mistreatment (not that you’ll be inclined to mistreat them) for more robust work.

223g
190 x 110 x 20mm
55mm blades
Max cut Ø7mm
Kigami #3 Yellow Paper Steel

Expect some play or ‘clack’ in the blades – this is intentional: the action of cutting with them applies lateral force which makes the blades bite correctly. Were they any tighter, the additional force from your hands would cause them to be unhelpfully tight in use.

Perfect in the garden and home, particularly for those with larger hands.

What makes our products so special

What’s in the box?

Our products are made with love and care in Japan, but it’s with you where their story lives on. And for that to happen, we need to make sure they arrive with you in one piece! We carefully wrap each item in bubble wrap and traditional Japanese newspapers (you’ll often find a Japanese crossword or sudoku to solve!). You’ll also receive a short guide on how to care for and cherish your new tableware. Sustainability is important to us and we’re working hard on ways to keep items safe while being kind to the planet, too.
