These simply designed, Japanese secateurs have few parts but rely on the strength and sharpness of the blade to make cutting easy and effortless. They cut consistently well, including heavy duty pruning and are ideal for all pruning jobs. The safety catch on the base of the handle takes getting used to, but is opened and closed by simply brushing it against your leg, It can also be folded out of the way when you’re pruning.

They come with a replacement spring and can be dismantled for maintenance although the central bolt is very stiff.
