I bought it together with pruning shears G of Chikichi. I tried to cut thick things with forged pruning shears, but it was sharp bumps. It is a story compared to the cheap one we used before and it may be natural because it is a new item, but it was a thing to make me think carefully. Although I am satisfied at this stage, I would like to use it while comparing it with Chikichi's pruning scissors G, to what extent the sharpness will be maintained when continuing to use for a while.
It is truly forged only and it is sturdy. It might be a bit heavy for women? I do not. Cautious maintenance is necessary so as not to rust. It has a sharper finish than stainless steel, so I can endure it.
