We all need a good pair of snips, ones that can live in pockets without doing any harm, and wander round the garden with us for those unplanned moments - and these ones are great. Niwaki Garden Snips are brilliant for flowers, fruit and veg, but aren't nearly as tough as secateurs, obviously, and are for green growth only, not woody pruning. The slender blades get right in for careful snipping. Carbon steel. Made in Japan. Total length 18.3 cm, blade length 5 cm, weight 91 g.
