Simple, hardwearing, and sharp, great garden shears for hedges, shrubs, and topiary.
The very best option for an all-around pair of garden shears. Hard-wearing SK steel holds its edge and puts up with a bit of mistreatment here and there, while the white oak handles are the perfect length for everyday use, and have subtle but satisfying bulges halfway down, offering a subliminal hotspot for where best to hold them for optimal balance.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Beautifully and intentionally designed, Niwaki gardening tools are rooted in Japanese gardening traditions.
Niwaki means garden tree. Not very exciting, but it implies far more than that. Japanese gardens are landscapes, microcosms of nature, and the trees are all shaped to fit into those landscapes - there’s an awful lot of artistry and cultural baggage in there too.

Keep them clean, and keep them sharp. We say that about everything, but it’s never truer than with shears.
