Niwaki GR Pro Lightweight Secateurs
Japanese Lightweight Pruners

Perfect for lighter pruning and slightly weaker hands.

Great lightweight secateurs that compromise slightly on strength in return for a touch more precision*- the slender bypass blade gets into places hitherto the preserve of the daintiest Pro Snips. Ergonomic handle, smooth spring action and chunky lock clasp at the bottom. *Note to self: a good thing in general*

Slightly smaller than our regular secateurs, these are the perfect choice for those with smaller or weaker hands, as well those needing the precision that the slender blade provides.

All cutting tools are strongest at the pivot end - avoid cutting thicker stems with the tips.

Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…

1. Correct Use:

  • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
  • 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
