A pair of mini shears for mini jobs. Great for tight spots and small scale topiary where you need a bit more control—and fab for grass edging. Nice red grippy rubber sleeves over the oak handles so nothing slips.

Niwaki Shears and Loppers are made in Sanjo by a family factory renowned for merging traditional blacksmithing methods with more efficient production techniques. It’s a busy place and there’s always something going on.


  • Made from SK Stainless Steel. Japanese White Oak handles.
  • Measures 14.6" x 5.6" x 1" (371 x 143 x 26mm). 125mm blades. 
  • Includes Vinyl Sheath
  • Made in Japan

Caring for Your Carbon Steel Tools:

  1. Correct Use: Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to —it will chip if abused.
    • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
    • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
    • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres
    • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
    • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts
  2. Keeping Them Clean: remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place.
  3. Keeping Them Sharp: New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping. Use a sharpening stone to sharpen the blades every time you use them. Trust us, you will notice the difference.
