52 objects in the studio – Tina’s flower shears

May 28, 2014

Our flower studio is bursting at the seams. We utilize every square inch of our space – and love every bit of it! We are surrounded by the vintage, the reconditioned, the antique, and the new. Everything that we have in the shop has a purpose, a story, and is loved – so let us tell you about it! Follow the Living Fresh Blog every Wednesday and let us introduce you to an object in the studio that we simply cannot get by without.

You may have remembered a few months back when we featured our beloved design knives on our blog.  Deb’s knife was old and worn down, and Tina’s was clean and new.  Because Tina is a knife-thrower-outer hers is always looking good because she is always having to replace it.  We are not certain why Tina possesses such a careless manner with her knife, but she certainly doesn’t have the same attitude about her flower shears.  She has had her shears for more than half a year and they haven’t ended up in the garbage yet!  These Japanese crafted forged flower shears are made of carbon-steel and are razor sharp! Perhaps because they are five times the price of a design knife, Tina’s shears have a greater tendency to remain on the design table than in the garbage can!  Want a pair of your own?  Check out Lee Valley in Waterloo.
