These are professional grade bypass shears, hand forged and tempered, with beautifully ground and polished blades and a razor-sharp edge. They feature a return spring firmly attached between the handles (a spare is provided but we aren't sure what you are going to do with it). A clunky catch at the bottom has a positive action keeping the shears closed when not in use. The shears are simple, sharp and strong with well-shaped, smooth handles, very comfortable to hold and the action is smooth and positive, resulting in a clean and efficient cut. If you're looking for a quality garden tool, you need look no further than this one. This may be the only pruning shear you'll ever need.

Simply the bestI was given a pair of these by a Japanese friend four years ago and they are the best secateurs I have ever used, they combine precision engineering with simplicity. Since owning them I have pruned about 50,000 rose bushes and they are still in excellent condition. I have just purchased two pairs as gifts for friends. They might seem a bit pricey but you get what you pay for, they are quite simply the best.

Stays Sharp For LongerAlthough they seem expensive the japanese steel blade stays sharp, unlike Felco & others which need repeated sharpening. Comfortable shape & light. We each have a pair now! Excellent quality tool, a pleasure to use.
