My favourite secateurs

We were just so impressed by these secateurs that we had to add them to our stock. Each pair has been hand-forged by master craftsmen using the slow tool method in a small family-owned forge hidden away in Japan. We were just rapt in the natural laced leather that encases the handles to cushion the grip. We were so impressed by how much pride the Japanese blacksmiths take in creating a tool to perfection.
