So much more fun than before
Nothing beats these one-handed Topiary Clippers for box clipping and other topiary: easy on the hand thanks to the 5" blades and spring action, easy on the eye thanks to the graceful, simple design, and infinitely better than ordinary sheep shears (which are fine if you have the forearms of a Kiwi sheep farmer, but useless for the rest of us.) The Japanese name (hakaribasami) means leaf cutters: it’s important not to cut old, hard wood, only soft new growth.
- 5" blades (13cm)
- total length 10.5" (27cm)
- ideal for detailed and small scale box clipping
Niwaki Tip: Dip blades in a weak mix of bleach or Jeyes Fluids every so often when working, to stop them clogging, and to help prevent spreading nasty viruses. Use wire wool to scrub off any stubborn leaf resin.
