Sentei Garden Scissors
Fab little garden scissors, absolutely brilliant for cut flowers, dead-heading and light pruning, as well as for pottering about aimlessly looking for something to snip.
Sharp, precise blades make for satisfying, clean cuts on softer green stems, as well as being beefy enough to cut through woodier stems up to around pencil thickness.
The traditional round handles are easy to grab, comfy to hold, and allow for the perfect sensitivity of delicate and accurate cuts, combined with great grip for more sunstantial stuff. They’re fairly small, perfect for smaller hands and jobs in the garden and the home.
Measurements: 17.2 x 10.2 x 1.7cm /5cm blade/

KA-70 Carbon Steel
Made in Japan
Tips: Use the tips for careful work and make bigger cuts further down the blades.
Care: Most of Niwaki's sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, 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
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
3. Keeping Them Sharp:
New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge.
