Used for ikebana flower displays, these Kenzan are becoming increasingly popular for western style flower arranging, doing away with foam completely. The brass pins are strong enough for woody material, as well as soft green and grass stems.
The spiky bases hold woody and green stalks, in any position you want. Make criss-cross cuts into the bottom of larger twigs, to stick them in easier. Lower into water in saucers or dishes, and top up daily.
Kenzan Straightener: This little brass Naoshi is for straightening and cleaning your Kenzan. It’s a double ender - unscrew the straightener spike and swap over for the cleaner. Comes with a very Japanese bell.
