kenzan pin frog needle point holder
Kenzan, litterally "sword mountain", is the Japanese term used to refer to a "needle point holder" or "pin frog". The Kenzan is used to hold flowers and other plant materials in place when making an arrangement. The plant materials are cut at an angle using the hasami (shears), then inserted into the pins for placement. Kenzan are available in many different sizes, shapes, weights and needle sizes.
