Mainichi Secateurs

Standard issue in Japan, these are considered the every day, go-to choice for pruning. The chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that’s easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves, and the spring is well secured, never accidentally popping out. They provide a clean and efficient cut and have yellow grips for easy spotting in the garden.
