TOBISHO A-Type 200mm secateurs for general pruning of trees and shrubs. The anvil style blade offers a clean cutting edge and the A-type design is sturdy and comfortable to hold. The blade is made of blue paper steel - a highly regarded carbon steel for tools and knives. If they are cared for properly, these secateurs will last many years.
TOBISHO secateurs are hand-forged in the city of Yamagata, which is famous for its blacksmithing and iron casting. Mr. Yasuhito Tobitsuka is the 8th and current Master Blacksmith of TOBISHO. The company has a history of more than 200 years, with 80 years and three generations of specialisation in secateurs and pruning shears. TOBISHO secateurs are hand-forged in a slow heating process from single pieces of high-quality Japanese steel, and are therefore exceptionally sturdy with a sharp cutting edge.
