Description

In the process of evaluating the very best secateurs and the best pruning shears, certain questions came up quite often. Let’s take a look at some of the FAQs around the products: Anvil vs Bypass Secateurs

Some secateurs come with a lifetime guarantee which shows that the company has faith in the materials and the workmanship. You might pay a bit more but this will give you peace of mind in your investment. Some models, normally the budget options, come with a 1 or 2 year warranty. Frequently Asked Questions

Wilko soft grip garden secateurs

These secateurs work with minimal effort allowing you to prune for longer without experiencing fatigue. They also feature a sap groove so that means less time cleaning them as you work. The blade has a low-friction coating which also adds to the ease of use.

The best mid-range secateurs have got to be the Okatsune no. 103 pruners. Small and hardy and sought-after in Japan, these are sharp and very strong. They’re also very popular amongst my professional gardener friends. One of the many things the Japanese are famous for is strong and extremely sharp blades. Given their history and experience, it should be no surprise that our first and top-rated product is the SK5 Japanese Bypass Secateurs.ARS is a Japanese brand that's been around for over a century. Known for their extremely high quality, their pruning tools, including the HP-VS8Z, are an investment, but if you take your gardening seriously, you'll appreciate the amazing sharpness of the double-hardened, double-plated, resin-coated steel blades; this pruner snips through rose stems and canes as easily as cutting through butter, creating clean, perfect cuts without any ragged edges or tears. The blades are slightly offset to reduce hand fatigue and effort required for clamping the pruners closed, so even if your hands aren't the strongest you can still easily keep your rosebushes looking their best. This can also vary more than you expect, a pair of secateurs can weigh anywhere from under 100g up to 400g. A lighter weight is ideal for continued use and fine pruning, but heavier models can feel more robust. Replaceable blades and springs Bypass secateurs offer the best precision for pruning although they are also great for general pruning around the garden. This type of secateurs consists of a sharpened blade on one side that bypasses a curved metal component, much like a pair of scissors. There are several secateurs’ designs. Each one has unique features and advantages. Let’s take a closer look at what is available. This will guide you to invest in the one that is best suited to your needs. •Bypass Secateurs You certainly do but you might have to do a bit of homework to find them. Many of the leading brands offer left handed options but they are a bit harder to find. Many lefties adapt to using them right handed. How to Sharpen Secateurs

Topiary expert Lerigo devoutly describes his chosen make of Japanese secateurs, Okatsune, as a bit of kit that Marie Kondo would approve of: simple, effective, and capable of sparking joy, time and time again. The Hitachi Yasugi high carbon steel of these Okatsune secateurs stands out, producing a clean, precise, efficient cut. Apparently, they’re made with “Izumo” iron sand, which was used in the manufacturing of ancient Japanese swords. Anvil pruners have a grooved stationary blade and a sharp cutting blade that comes straight down into the groove, creating a clean, crushing cut that is especially good when you are pruning dead twigs or small branches, but can also be used to prune living, woody stems. Anvil pruners are not the best choice, however, for slicing through soft, green stems; you want your bypass pruners for that job. We especially like this 8-inch anvil pruner from Gonicc, which has carbon-steel, chromium-plated blades that stay sharp. The handles are aluminum with a soft, rubbery grip for comfort. Charging takes around three hours, and Vonhaus approximates a usage of 800 cuts on a single charge. We pruned for several hours over three consecutive days before a red warning light began to flash on the pruner’s base. Weight and size. While there may not be much variety in size for secateurs, you should still make sure that its dimensions fit comfortably in your hand (or both hands if necessary). The weight of your secateurs is also very important because heavier tools require more physical effort from users when lifting as well as when repeatedly opening and closing them during work tasks such as pruning plants with tough stems.

When selecting the best professional secateurs for your needs, here are a few pointers. These will help you to make the best investment. Blade Material According to topiary expert Darren Lerigo, most gardeners will find bypass secateurs to be the better bet, because they make for a cleaner cut. How do I care for the blades of my secateurs? They are essentially the same thing. In the UK, we tend to say secateurs while in the US and other areas, most people refer to them as pruners. While there are various designs the terms secateurs and pruners can be used interchangeably. How to Look After Secateurs These lightweight, compact garden snips are perfect for deadheading flowers, lightly pruning unruly annuals and perennials, removing twigs, or clipping away unwanted greenery. They are also useful around the vegetable garden, for pruning houseplants, or even for shaping bonsai. The snips have stainless-steel, precision-ground blades that are very sharp and make clean cuts without leaving stems ragged or torn. The handles are plastic with a rubbery grip and are comfortable in your hand. A few customers did complain that the spring has too much force, however, and so requires more pressure to close the snips than they would like.

Ergonomics. Whether you consider yourself a hobby gardener or a professional landscaper, any garden-related tool that you’re using will be better if its design is ergonomic. Ergonomic tools are easier on the body and reduce muscle strain and fatigue from repetitive motion. In addition to making garden work more enjoyable, these benefits also help protect against injury down the road. This makes it much easier to get through larger branches that would otherwise require more force than you could use in one squeeze of your hand. The handles are lightweight and comfortable. They have a PVC coating for extra comfort and this also prevents them from slipping. The build is aluminium and they are built to last and are rust resistant.

Okatsune no. 103 pruners

I would keep to the green and living wood; not ones for angry apple trees, but a decent budget pair. Finding the ideal secateurs for your needs could be a challenge but we have given you the most important things to look out for when making your decision. We also give you an honest lowdown of some of the very best options available. Recharging is fast and easy using a micro USB, while you can even adjust the cutting power to suit each plant. For instance, setting the Power Assist function to low means you can prune thinner stems without draining the battery as much, while medium and high settings let you cut through branches that are a bit tougher. Pruning can be tiring work, especially to your hands and wrists. To offset that, many brands have pruners that are designed specifically to reduce the effort needed to squeeze the pruner blades closed and then reopen them. Notably, The Gardener’s Friend Ratchet Pruning Shears are specifically designed to be easy to use, even for those with sore or weak hands. Springs that help to reopen the blades are common, but some pruners take it further with ratcheting mechanisms that help decrease the force required to squeeze the blades together.
