What is the story behind the Kenzan / Flowerfrog?

The word "kenzan" is Japanese and means "sword mountain." These tools were initially designed for use in the Japanese art of flower arranging known as ikebana. Ikebana emphasizes simplicity, harmony, and balance in floral compositions, and kenzans play a vital role in achieving these principles.Kenzans have become popular tools in Western floral arranging as well, where they are often referred to as "flower frogs." The term "flower frog" likely originated in the United States in the early 20th century. These tools gained popularity in the West due to their efficiency in holding flowers in place and facilitating creative floral designs.

Kenzans and flower frogs come in various sizes and shapes, allowing floral designers to work with different containers and arrangements. They are versatile tools for both amateur and professional florists, enabling them to create beautiful and stable floral displays. While the designs and materials have evolved over time, the core purpose of kenzans and flower frogs remains the same: to assist in creating stunning and balanced floral arrangements.

How do you clean your Kenzan?

  1. The Kenzan rake brush is a real "hero" when it comes to cleaning your Flower Frog / Kenzan. With its narrow but powerful metal arms, it can reach where it's otherwise almost impossible. A toothbrush / dish brush can help in some cases, but if you want to get your flower frog really clean, this is the brush to use. Using a dirty flower frog with organic material residues is an effective way to quickly spoil the water. Bacteria in the water will cause your flowers to die much faster. The Kenzan rake is also great for cleaning the metal base to restore its shine.
  2. Clean your Kenzan with a dish brush or toothbrush after use. Place it upside down on a towel to allow it to dry between uses. The Kenzan should not be constantly submerged in water, as there is a risk of discoloration. Discoloration of the surface / dish / bowl may also occur with prolonged use.
