What are the Sophie Conran Gardener’s Secateurs like to use?

Following the popular design of Japanese style secateurs, these simple, stylish secateurs are made from rust-proof stainless steel. They have a brass safety catch at the base of the handles, which is easily engaged by flicking it against your thigh. They feel light and comfortable in the hand, although the metal handles do feel slippery and cold unless wearing gloves. They cut well and have a 20mm cutting width. No replaceable parts are available, although they are easy to sharpen and look after.

For the quality of design and performance these are well priced. They come with a 10-year warranty and are good value for money.

Who are the Sophie Conran Gardener’s Secateurs most useful for?
