These ‘double yellows’ are made especially for lefties.
The locking mechanism (the clasp at the bottom of the handles) is very deliberate and easy to use, even with gloves on and only one hand free (push the lock against your hip).
And, best of all, the lock never accidentally engages, unlike some secateur brands.
The yellow handles are easy to find if you put them down in the garden. Or, they can be removed if you prefer a more traditional metal look for your secateurs.
Niwaki sharpening stones recommended for this model. The steel sharpens easily but they are not suitable for heavy hacking, and definitely not for opening paint cans!
Made from one piece of steel, blade to handle so you never have to replace the blades - simply clean and sharpen regularly and they will last you a lifetime.
