Kenzan 50 mm with detachable rubber ring for Ikebana flower arrangements

Item No.: OT5

An IKEBANA fakir bed, also known as kenzan, is an essential tool for Japanese flower arranging. It is a metal flower arranging pin holder with small, sharp pins (brass copper needles) used to hold flowers and plants in place during arranging.

Arrangements can be easily composed and adjusted with precision and control using an IKEBANA fakir bed. This metal kenzan stands alone at the bottom of the container to support your small bouquets. Its compact size (50 mm) makes it ideal for simple floral arrangements with 3 or 5 stems.

The rubber base or rubber ring ensures that the flower arrangement and the Ikebana pin holder stay nicely in place.

An additional advantage: the rubber base prevents damage to the vase or container.

Can a Kenzan Fakirbed rust?
