Japanese Garden Shears (short handles)
The quality and speed of service of Japeto is exemplary. I ordered these shears on one day and they arrived the next and all of their packaging is recyclable with negligible use of plastic which is a must for me. The short handled shears are bliss to use but take a little getting used to as they are sprung like secateurs. Once you do you can’t work out how you ever coped without them. They are so light (but strong) that you can even use them one handed (by sliding your hand closer to the blades) which is very useful if you want to pull away separate stems with one hand whilst clipping them with the other. The oak handles are very effective at absorbing shock which is good for my shoulders after a day of precision hand cutting both sides of a 30m hedge and the carbon steel blades hold a very long lasting edge (just make sure you oil them). I will continue to recommend this Company and its products to all my horticultural friends and colleagues.
Just ordered and had these shears delivered NEXT DAY!!!! Could not believe the price for the quality! They are really light weight probably because of the wood handles i assume. Either way they cut brilliantly - cannot recommend enough!
I bought a selection of items including the Japeto Grass and herbaceous sickle, shears, hoe and fork, secateurs and the hand held rake. All are brilliantly packaged and all came complete with a lovely black canvas bag each!
