A trio of very fine, handmade Japanese pruning tools, wrapped in hand dyed tenugui cotton, presented in a Paulownia gift box. 

Tokusen 165mm:

Exquisitely finished pair of smaller secateurs that fit beautifully in the palm of the hand. Although not as substantial as their full-sized siblings, they’re perfect for light garden pruning, deadheading and cut flowers. Not just for small hands either - the hand forged blade, solid build and ergonomics more than make up for their diminutive size. Rather like a derringer, can get you out of all sorts of scrapes.

Tokusen 210mm:

These are really rather special - very beautiful, powerful secateurs hand forged in Yamagata, with a punchy spring and coil cushioning for heavy and more demanding pruning. Less suitable for smaller hands.

Tokusen Barracudas:

Longer, more slender blades than regular secateurs, but still with the chunky bypass for woody pruning, these hand forged pruners cover a wide range of roles in the garden, falling just short of heavy duty pruning, but easily covering most day-to-day work. Exceptionally well made, and beautifully finished, deep within the mountains of Yamagata.

All three pairs have been hand forged in Japanese S58C Carbon Steel, which is easy to sharpen to a very keen edge.

Care Instructions

To prevent rust from developing, we advise that you wipe dry and apply Camellia Oil after use.

Sharpening after a period of use is advised to ensure your tools stay in good condition.
We recommend using the Niwaki Sharpening Stone #1000 as it’s best for general sharpening.

• Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material.
• Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts.
• Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water.
• Dry, wipe over with Camellia Oil and store in a dry place.
• Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks.
