Traditional Japanese Niwaki loppers with big strong forged blades and stout oak handles. No messing about with squidgy shock absorbers – the oak handles take care of that – or adjustable, ratchet jiggery pokery, just the very pleasing action of properly forged carbon steel at work. Suitable for branches up to 2.5 cm/1 inch, although as some species are harder than others this is only a guide, and common sense should tell you when to stop… and cut bigger branches at a 45˚angle.
