Tobisho Barracuda Snips

Precision and power: the slender blade of a snip combined with the heft of a bypass secateur

More Information

Operating somewhere between a secateur and a snip – both areas in which Tobsiho excel – these dinky snub-nosed Barracudas are the perfect choice for precise pruning, combining the benefits of a slender blade backed up by the stronger bypass. They’re not as strong as secateurs, nor quite as precise as snips, but nonetheless make a very handy addition to the gang. Perfect for the cutting garden.


    Pay attention to the max cut guide (8mm) and avoid twisting as you cut woodier stems

    Sharpening Shears and Secateurs

    Our Niwaki Stones work for just about every edged blade:

    • #220: coarse, for rough blades
    • #1000: fine, for regular sharpening - the most useful stone for every day sharpening
    • #3000: super fine, for honing and detailed work

    For Secateurs:

    NB. We strongly advise NOT taking your secateurs apart - they never go back together quite the same.

    • Soak stones in water for a few minutes before use, and keep wet during use
    • Use the concave edge of the stone, moving from the pivot towards the tip of the blade, following the curve as you go
    • FOR STRAIGHT BLADED SHEARS use the flat side of the stone
    • Then back again - back and forth along the whole length of the blade
    • Use as much of the stone as possible, not just the top inch
    • This is a gentle action - don’t use too much pressure
    • Next, turn the secateurs over, and use the flat side of the stone to smooth the burr off the inside of the blade, going slightly over, creating a very fine bevel
    • Use the convex edge of the stone to clean off the curved edge of the bypass
    • Finally, clean and dry the secateurs, and wipe with Camellia Oil
