(About the Steel)
Most of Kaneshins’ bonsai and trimming scissors are made from “Yasuki steel
(Hagane)” Hagane is the Japanese word for steel, and Yasuki is the name of

began the tradition of naming them Blue steel, White steel, and Yellow
High quality Blue steel > White steel > Yellow steel Low quality
Yellow steel : Whilst this steel is not
as high quality as either the blue or white steel, it is till a very good
quality Yasuki steel, and far superior to normal steel.
White steel : This steel is strong and
is ground sharp enough to be ideally suited to cutting thicker branches.
Blue steel : This is the best quality
Yasuki steel we use. We can get the sharpest edge using this steel, which
means you achieve a very clean cut when cutting thinner and softer things
such as leaves and buds. When compared to white steel, there is not much
difference when cutting thicker branches, but it is more effective for
