Rattan Secateurs

Regular price $170.00

These Limited Edition secateurs are special in all sorts of ways - they’re forged from S58C carbon steel, a premium, hard wearing steel that retains its edge well and sharpens easily. The design is a combination of the two traditional Japanese secateur designs, A and B Types, offering perfect ergonomics of grip and balance for long use. Handles are wrapped with Wisteria rattan, that not only looks amazing but also provides a natural, textured grip that feels great in the hand.

Limited production batches - so lead time can be lengthy - and they come served up in a kiribako Paulownia wood box (yes - the one with the big leaves!) and make a most excellent gift.

As a natural material, rattan should be treated a step more carefully than our regular secateurs - not bashed about, not left out in the rain overnight (not a good idea, for any tools, incidentally…) and generally looked after. In particular, don’t fold the secateur lock catch inside the handle, or use with it half out, as this can wear and snag the rattan.

Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibers and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges) Do not twist or apply uneven pressure. Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibers.
