SORRY, these are SOLD OUT until spring 2014.
have a look at the OKATSUNE secateurs instead
Award winning Tobisho secateurs, with the fancy yellow and red handles. Hand forged, deep in the mountains of Yamagata, from amazing blue paper steel. The advantages of hand forged over machined secateurs? Normal secateurs have one bit of steel (the blade) welded to another (the handle) creating potential weakness. Hand forged secateurs are pressed and bashed out of one piece of (very high quality) steel, from blade to handle, so are much much stronger.
The big chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that’s easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves. Lovely weight and feel to them, with a beautifully refined action and smooth cut.
Standard size (8") 250gm.
left handed model out of stock until Spring 2014
