Product Description

Small but classy Japanese hand broom for all your domestic chores! This little brush is made from the palm fibres of Trachycarpus fortunei, bound together with copper wire. Great for careful sweeping of bonsai and other potted plants, corners of terraces and patios, ground covers such as moss and mind your own business, and in the home.

The chunky handle gives a satisfying grip, and the palm fibres provide the perfect balance of coarseness for some serious sweeping.

Niwaki's Care Guide:

"Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they may, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…"

1. Correct Use:
  • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
  • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres 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 fibres
  • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
  • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts
2. Keeping Them Clean:
  • Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water
  • Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place
