So there’s a new player in town gathering pace in the world of pruning tools. Niwaki to be precise and their range of secateurs.
Niwaki have been around for a while, their range of specially designed ladders are used by many professional gardeners, land owners and country estates up and down the country.
For more years than I care to remember I have been a Felco No 2 fan. For me, up until now they have been my favourite secateur. Extremely well designed, well balanced, stay sharp for a very long time and also, in this throw away culture all spares for the Felco 2 are available online.
So this is going to be a tough review but I will be completely impartial when reviewing both these brands and models of secatuers to help you might an informed decision when making a purchase, whether for yourself or as a gift.
Both models are going through 2 weeks of solid gardening. The results will be published at the end of November.
