Sharp, precise and built to last, these versatile shears are a wonderful introduction to Japanese pruning tools – this pair is recommended for home gardeners, amateurs and those looking to deepen their expertise. To ensure a long life, avoid cutting wire, metal and gravel; sharpen every few weeks; and oil regularly (Niwaki recommends camellia oil) to prevent rust. Comes with a spare spring.

Care & Use Instructions

Remove leaf resin with water. Wipe dry, oil and store in a dry place.

To sharpen, use a sharpening stone. New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but with regular use over time they will require occasional sharpening.

Avoid cutting wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material. Even bamboo fibers and some very hard woods – especially knots, burrs and dead wood – can damage steel edges. Do not twist or apply uneven pressure. Try to cut branches diagonally, not straight across.
