What are the Kent and Stowe Left Handed Bypass Secateurs like to use?

With a reverse design for left-handed gardeners, these chunky secateurs have an SK5 carbon steel blade. They cut well, with a 20mm cutting width but do feel quite heavy. The safety catch is on the top and releases with just a squeeze, which we love and is easy to lock again with the thumb. The grey plastic coating on the aluminium handles could get lost easily and there are no replacement parts available for these secateurs. They will only last as long as the blade or spring.

Are the Kent and Stowe Left Handed Bypass Secateurs good value for money?

These are very well priced and have a five-year warranty, so we think they’re good value for money.

Who are the Kent and Stowe Left Handed Bypass Secateurs most useful for?

Their weight makes them best for left-handed gardeners with larger hands.
