Hand forged in Sanjo in the north of Japan, our 'double yellows' are the perfect combination of refined craftsmanship and every day usability. KA70 carbon steel holds a mean edge, the chunky catch at the bottom and the strong spring gives a reassuringly simple functional feel, and the yellow grips show up when you've left them somewhere in the garden (or you can remove them for a more traditional look.)
Perfect for keen gardeners, landscapers and professionals who work their tools hard and need quality and precision in daily use. Jake's current favourites.
Use for every day pruning, clean with Crean Mate and Camellia oil, and sharpen with a Niwaki #1000 stone every few weeks.
