A stretched pair of secateurs - or heavy duty clippers?
OK, these are a bit different. For a start, Tobisho make just about the best tools you'll find: drop forged, great steel, lovely balance, and those slightly retro colours. But then they go and make these: the length and 'clipability' of Topiary Clippers combined with the strength of bypass Secateurs.
Absolutely perfect for cutting back and reshaping old box topiary (box wood, as you know is hard stuff - its timber was traditionally used for printing blocks.) Friends in the nursery trade swear by them for heavier winter clipping.

Niwaki Tip: All these long, sharp things are much happier living in a holster...
