Right-handed, XL Right-handed, and Left-handed
These ‘double yellow’ GR Pros have the same great basic Japanese design as Okatsune and Tobisho secateurs with the clever locking mechanism at the bottom of the handles.
The lock is deliberate and easy to use, even with only one hand free - with a little practice you can use your pinkie to open the lock and then push the lock against your hip to close it!
The GR Pros can be differentiated from the others by the symmetrically curved handles that fit very comfortably in the palm of your hand. The blades are not angled like the Okatsune and Tobisho.
Right-handed model: has a slightly narrower spread and is recommended for small to mid-sized hands. They are comparable in length to the Okatsune Standard size and the Tobisho SR-1s, and are just a bit lighter.
XL right-handed model: this is our largest pair of secateurs and is great for guys with really big hands! It is considerably heavier than the standard size (see product dimensions below) and has a much wider spread.
Left-handed model: our only secateurs specifically for lefties! It is slightly stockier and a wee bit heavier than the standard right-handed model.
Niwaki sharpening stones recommended for this model. The steel sharpens easily but they are not suitable for heavy hacking, and definitely not for cutting wire or opening paint cans.
