These snips have shorter, narrow, curved blades designed especially for harvesting fruit - the rounded tips mean less chance that you'll damage your fruit by poking them with pointy snips or the bulkier blades of secateurs. Use them with the blades curved away from the fruit.
They are smaller and less bulky than regular secateurs and are designed for light, detailed work. The small blades allow you to get into tight spaces and make precise cuts.
I like to carry my snips in my pouch or sometimes snug them into my double holster behind my hori hori - so I always have them on hand when I need them. They also fit perfectly in a single holster or the new Niwaki pocket pouch.
All Okatsune snips come with a spare spring, although I haven’t needed mine yet and I’ve been using my snips for several years.
