Handmade carbon steel secateurs with yellow handles by Kuro Shears, an experienced blacksmith workshop in Yamagata, Japan. The secateurs set comes with a genuine leather pouch, a spare spring and a box.


If you don't need a pouch, select 'No pouch' from option.


The belt clip of our pouch is designed to go under the belt then over the top to greatly reduce the likelihood of your pouch coming off while you are working in a sitting position.

We have youtube video to demonstrate - please watch.


Kudo Shears is run by Kudo family and has continued for 80 years, succeeding the 660 years' reginal blacksmithing techniques of Yamagata Prefecture. Kudo-san Snr has been pruducing long-lasting tough secateurs for 55 years and has received multiple awards for his creations. His seccies are loved by garden professionals, orchard workers and flower growers. His son is currently working with him to prepare for succeeding this workshop in the future.


Type A secateurs have slightly thinner blades than standard B. The shoulder of the handle helps to hold at the back of handle to maximise the leverage. 


These secateurs can comfortably cut branches up to 18mm.


Note: If your secateurs are left wet, or exposed to water then rust may develop. We advise that you wipe down your secateurs and spray with a lubricant such as WD40 or INOX at the end of each day’s use and store in a pouch.
