More Information

When you go on the hunt for great stuff in the mountains of Yamagata, you either come home laden with fruit - delicious, perfectly formed cherries in particular - or secateurs. We chose secateurs, and here they are: all three of the Tokusen range, wrapped in hand dyed tenugui cotton, within a Paulownia gift box.

The little 165ers fit beautifully in the palm of the hand, the perfect partner to the larger 210's, ably supported by the all-rounder Barracudas. There’s something here for pretty much everyone, not that you’ll want to share.

Tips
    • Clean with a Niwaki Crean Mate rust and sap eraser
    • Sharpen with a Niwaki #1000 grit stone
    • Protect with Niwaki Camellia Oil

    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
