Niwaki Mainichi Pruning Secateurs

Standard issue in Japan, where these are considered the every day, go-to choice for pruning. The big chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that’s easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves, and the spring is well secured and never accidentally pops out. As with all Japanese secateurs, these have a simple direct action, resulting in a very clean, efficient cut.

Yellow grips stand out in the garden, and are great for when they end up in the compost heap. We’ve added one blue sleeve to the left handed version, to avoid mix-ups with your right-handed partner’s or colleague’s pair.

Suitable for cuts of 10–15mm, depending on plant type and what you had for breakfast.
