Ikebana Equipment

Hasami

Hasami (clippers or scissors) are used to cut flowers and stems to their desired lengths. Although the way stems are cut depends on the type of plant and arrangement, most cuts are made at an angle. This makes them easier to secure in the vase and kenzan and makes the area for drawing water larger.
