Shorter than a topiary clipper, longer and stronger than a pair of snips, these GR Pro Clippers sit alone in a unique and lovely no man's land - not only are they great for topiary clipping, they'll also handle slightly rougher chopping back.
The locking mechanism is very deliberate and easy to use, even with gloves on and only one free hand (use your pinky to open, push the lock against your hip to close). This one-handed feature is a what makes these clippers worth the investment for the professional gardener who uses them frequently.
The yellow handles are easy to find if you put them down in the garden. Keep them locked when not in use so you don't poke yourself with the very pointy, sharp tips.
Niwaki sharpening stones are recommended for this model. The steel sharpens easily but they are not suitable for heavy hacking, and definitely not for opening paint cans!
Fits in the Niwaki Short Holster perfectly.
