Okatsune snips from Niwaki.

Niwaki makes the best Japanese gardening tools available to British gardeners.

Okatsune snips are the lighter-weight alternative to the Okatsune secateurs, ideal for smaller scale pruning and for cutting flowers, fruit and vegetables. 

Okatsune cutters have long been cherished by professional gardeners in Japan for their strength, sharpness and ease of use. Unlike many Western brands of cutter they do not use gearing or cushioning but instead have a direct action which makes for a clean and efficient cut.

The safety catch at the base of the handles is easy to secure, even with muddy gloves or cold wet hands, and the red and white handles mean that they are always easy to locate.

Okatsune snips were described as "terrific" by Gardener's World magazine.

Made of Hitachi Yasugi high carbon steel.
