These secateurs are designed for general garden use, ideal for pruning small branches, flowers, and houseplants. Each piece is hand forged and sharpened using traditional methods and has it's own variations and irregularities.
This model of secateurs is unique in that it has been manufactured with a handle that is much wider, and has a much gentler radius, than it's regularly sized counterparts. In this case, the handle is about 2.5cm wide and perfect for large hands. It is extremely gentle on the fingers throughout a long pruning session. We know of no other secateurs manufacturer experimenting with these sort of design changes.
