Niwaki Rattan S-Type Clippers
“Nifty summer pruning tool when thinner stems and dead flower heads are the things to be chopped off every day” So said Alan Titchmarsh.

Limited edition garden clippers for snipping, clipping and light pruning. Hand lashed by craftsmen in Sanjo, in the north of Japan, with a single unbroken length of wisteria tendril rattan, they have 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. 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.

Niwaki Tip: keep them clean, and well oiled.
