Japanese Forged Leather Handled Pruning Shear - 200mm

Rutlands    Part No. JP1025
  • • Crafted by a master blacksmith
  • • Hand forged razor sharp high carbon steel blades
  • • Precision ground and mirror polished blades to make beautifully clean cuts
  • • Luxurious thick leather binding provides a comfortable firm grip

The thick leather binding on these shears absorbs moisture from the hand in use and, combined with the ergonomic curve of the handles, makes these pruning shears exceptionally comfortable to hold. Ideal for lopping and trimming small branches, bushes and shrubs, these shears are hand forged from high carbon steel and feature precision ground, mirror polished blades.

Made in Japan by a master blacksmith these pruning shears are razor sharp and the blades make beautifully, clean cuts. Unlike lower quality shears, the two halves of the shears are fastened together by a nut and bolt assembly to allow the user to tighten the shears should they ever become loose. A locking lever at the bottom of these pruning shears keeps the blades closed when not in use for added safety.

    These are beautifully-made pruning shears: super sharp, strongly constructed yet not heavy despite being 100% steel. Shears come in a nice Japanese-character card box and with a spare spring which is great. Easy to re-sharpen (though they won't need it for ages) with a slim ceramic rod. Need a drop of oil before use and I recommend hair clipper oil which is fluid and clear. The catch which keeps the handles shut is sprung and closes with a satisfying click. The quality of this item, as with all Japanese cutting tools, is immediately apparent. Fairly pricey for secateurs but good value in my view because they're top quality. I've used this tool to reduce the height of a 12' long hedge and it made a neat job. My one observation / criticism (hence 4 stars) is that the handles would be more comfortable if they were slightly further apart - or had slightly more volume to achieve same result: they're a little too close together when the shears are closed. Great for medium sized hands. I recommend attaching a piece of cord with a small cable tie to keep them on your wrist when in use.

    Great product, feel very comfortable when using them, love the design and have a very sharp edge (don't clip your fingers!)

    Beautiful Product
    I've been wanting these shears for a while now and saw that Rutlands had a sale on all garden tools. Quickly got these ordered and couldn't be happier with them.
