Award winning hand-forged secateurs, with the fancy yellow and red handles.
Hand forged, deep in the mountains of Yamagata, from amazing high carbon steel, these secateurs combine a beautifully refined balance with a smooth, razor-sharp cut. The face of the cutting blade is slightly hollow ground to reduce friction in the cutting action, giving a cleaner, easier cut.
The advantages of hand forged over machined secateurs? Normal secateurs have one bit of steel (the blade) welded to another (the handle) creating imbalance and potential weakness These babies are bashed out of one piece of top quality Yasuki steel, from blade to handle, so are much much stronger and much sharper, but also feel better.
- big chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that’s easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves.
- red and yellow handles? Not sure really, quite smart though - but if you don't like them, you can peel them off to give a more traditionally japanese look. (see the picture below)
