Okatsune 103 Bypass Secateurs review
In a nutshell
These deceptively simple, robust secateurs are the No.1 choice for professional gardeners in Japan and are a BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Best Buy winner. Well made, sharp and strong, they're easy to use and long lasting.
What we tested
- Reassuringly robust, well balanced and comfortable in the hand
- Cutting easy thanks to the very sharp, strong blade that stays sharp for a long time
- Chunky safety catch is at the base and needs two hands to engage (although with practice you can use the side of your leg!)
- The bolt for dismantling and maintenance is stiff.
