Why we love them
These Senkichi lightweight secateurs are fantasticly light, being made from a fibreglass composite. Measuring 200mm long, they weigh in approximately 25% less than a standard construction equivalent.
The flourine coated cutting blade has a cutting length of 55mm and are suited for cutting branches up to 15mm in diameter.
The black coloured, fibreglass handles offer a great feedback from the cutting blades with a satisfying sound to go with it. The red stripe also makes these lightweight secateurs easier to see around the garden, standing out amongst the lawn.
Manufactured in China and made specifically for the Japanese market, Senkichi offer a high quality tool and a fantastic price. We offer a range of Senkichi tools for use around the garden.
The Senkichi lightweight range are ideal for those with slightly less arm or wrist strength and mobility.
Available in two sizes to suit differing hand sizes:
- Senkichi SGFP-1 – Smaller 180mm secateurs
- Senkichi SGFP-5 – Standard 200mm secateurs
Pruning of branches, deadheading and general maintenance as well as Niwaki pruning.
Clean the blades of any sap residue, using a little wire wool if required and oil with camellia oil to prevent the blades from rusting.
It may become necessary to sharpen the blades after a while, this can be done using a whetstone.
