Niwaki / Mini Snips 'Nigiribasami'
Niwaki Mini Snips Nigiribasami
Traditional Nigiribasami snips. Ever eaten an onigiri? (rice balls, sometimes wrapped in seaweed, normally with something inside, like salmon.) Well, an onigiri is so called because it’s squeezed into shape in the palm of your hand, and these little beauties are so called because…you squeeze them in the palm of your hand. Nigiri meaning to squeeze, Basami meaning scissors.
Fantastic for bonsai, herbs and other jobs that call for minute precision, as well as fabric and sewing work, and fine paper cutting.

Caring For Your Tools
- Dry blade immediately following use, blade will rust if left wet
- Do not cut hard materials, such as wire, metal, plastic, etc. as Japanese steel is sharp but brittle and can chip if used improperly
- It is recommended to sharpen and clean your tools regularly; use Crean Mate to remove leaf resin, rust and gunk, sharpen with sharpening stone, and wipe with Camelia Oil to prevent further rusting. Products can be found in the Care Kit Offered.
