Gardening Scissors

Yoshioka Blade Manufacturing Co. and the “Hasami Masamune” Hedge Shear The story of the “Masamune” shear begins with Kihachi Yoshioka, founder of the Yoshioka company. In 1946 (Showa 21), he manufactured a 9” tailor’s scissor in the midst of the chaos following WWII. Two years later, he produced various tailor’s scissors, and by 1973 (Showa 48) he began making garden shears and loppers. Since the majority of its customers are professional gardeners, Yoshioka Co. aims to produce well-balanced, razor sharp tools. Yoshioka Co. believes in listening and collaborating with the professional end user in order to develop superior tools. The company strives to remain true to the traditional blacksmiths of Japan and produce quality tools under the motto, “great tools attract users on their own.”
