Why we love them
Onoyoshi secateurs, just like the other tools in this range speak for themselves once you hold them. The sound of the cutting action instinctively lets you know that they are a high quality product.
Based in Miki city in Hyōgo Prefecture, Onoyoshi began making garden secateurs in 1964 having been making knives since 1936. The quality of these tools are evident and are probably the most handmade product we have seen.
Made from Japanese high carbon content steel, they offer a great balance of strength and ease of use. They are hand forged from a single piece of steel using traditional techniques. The end result provide a great feel, balance and cutting action for prolonged use.
Measuring 200mm long with 65mm blades, they are perfect for work in the garden, able to tackle most pruning jobs.
The handles are adorned with hand stitched leather covers to make them comfortable to use. The tan leather covers will age and darken with use to develop their own distinctive look.
Presented in a box with a spare spring, Onoyoshi secateurs make a great gift for gardeners.
