Niwaki Tokusen Barracuda Secateurs
Japanese Pruners

Why barracuda? If you’d seen the fish, you wouldn’t need to ask.

More Information

Longer, more slender blades than regular secateurs, but still with the chunky bypass for woody pruning, these hand forged pruners cover a wide range of roles in the garden, falling just short of heavy duty pruning, but easily covering most day-to-day work. Exceptionally well made, and beautifully finished, deep within the mountains of Yamagata.

Wrapped in hand-dyed, rugosa-red tenugui cloth, within a Paulownia box. Also available as one third of the Tokusen Set.

Why barracuda? If you’d seen the fish, you wouldn’t need to ask.

    Caring For Your Tools

    Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…

    1. Correct Use:

    • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
    • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
    • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
    • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres
    • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
    • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts

    2. Keeping Them Clean:

    • Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water
    • Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place

    3. Keeping Them Sharp:

    New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).

    • Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks
    • Sharpen Shears and Topiary Clippers EVERY TIME you use them - the difference is amazing
