Limited edition garden clippers for snipping, clipping and light pruning. Hand lashed with a single unbroken length of wisteria tendril rattan by craftsmen in Sanjo, in the north of Japan. The rattan gives them a lovely warm quality that compliments the hard wearing KA70 carbon steel.
The 3" blades are shorter than Topiary Clippers, but longer and with a bit more clout than regular snips, making them ideal as all-round garden shears. Incidentally, the smaller size fits female hands very nicely indeed!
They come served up in a kiribako Paulownia wood box (yes - the one with the big leaves!) and make a most excellent gift.
As a natural material, rattan should be treated a step more carefully than our regular tool handles - not bashed about, not left out in the rain overnight (not a good idea, for any tools, incidentally...) and generally looked after. In particular, don't fold the lock catch inside the handle, as this can wear the rattan.
