Japanese Garden Shears - Standard

    Niwaki Japanese Garden Shears - StandardNiwaki Japanese Garden Shears - Standard

The very best option for an all-round pair of garden shears - ideal for hedges, shrubs, box clipping and topiary. Hard wearing SK steel holds its edge and puts up with a bit of mistreatment here and there, while the white oak handles are the perfect length for everyday use, and have subtle but satisfying bulges half way down, offering a subliminal hotspot for where best to hold them for optimal balance.

  1. Correct Use: Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)/Do not twist or apply uneven pressure/Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres/Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers) / Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts
  2. Keeping Them Clean: Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place
  3. Keeping Them Sharp: New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).
