Niwaki - Okatsune Secateurs
Okatsune secateurs are the No. 1 choice for professional gardeners in Japan; they're simple, razor-sharp and strong. Unlike Western brands, which rely on cushioning and gearing for a smooth feel, these have a more direct action, resulting in a very clean, efficient cut. The big chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that's easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves. The red and white handles show up well in daylight and at night respectively. Hitachi Yasugi steel. Made in Japan. Size: Standard. Total length 20 cm, blade length 5.5 cm, weight 230 g.
