Hard wearing, heavy duty clippers for box clipping, topiary and other jobs in the garden where double handed shears are too large or clumsy.
The Niwaki GR Pro range has been designed and manufactured in Japan to provide a more readily available alternative to the hard-to-get Tobisho products. Very similar in design, size and feel, these are a little lighter than the Tobishos if weight is a concern.
The locking mechanism is very deliberate and easy to use, even with gloves on and only one free hand (push the lock against your hip). 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!
