These secateurs are lighter and slightly smaller than the Okatsune and Tobisho secateurs - we trialled them in response to several requests for secateurs suitable for weaker hands. The spring is not as stiff as the other models nor is the spread as wide, both of which were problems for a few customers.
The blade is slimmer than a standard set of secateurs but thicker than a set of snips, which means a little less cutting strength but gives the ability to fit into tighter spots as you would with your snips. Bit of an all-in-one if you don’t want to carry both secateurs and snips with you in the garden.
Same superior Japanese-style locking clasp at the bottom of the handles as the Okatsune and Tobisho models, same smooth action and carefully shaped handles for easier grip.
Niwaki sharpening stones recommended for this model. Comes with a spare spring.
