Mainichi - "everyday" - secateurs are the first choice for professional gardeners in Japan and it's easy to see why. They're made from high carbon steel and are simple, sharp and strong. Unlike western secateur brands like Felco which rely on cushioning and gearing for a smooth feel, these have a more direct action, resulting in a very clean, efficient cut.
The big 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 and never accidentally pops out. These secateurs are things of great beauty. Perfect for general use around the garden.
