Okatsune Secatuers No 103 – KST103
The Okatsune 103 is the most popular pruner in the range, with its length of 202 mm. The blades of this razor-sharp pruner are forged from the finest Japanese steel and enable you to effortlessly cut through branches up to 25 mm. Designed with a slightly longer handle for gardeners with a medium/large hand.
Okatsune secateurs are the No. 1 choice for professional gardeners in Japan; they’re simple, sharp and strong. Unlike western brands, which rely on cushioning and gearing for a smooth feel, these have a more direct action, resulting in a very clean, efficient cut. The big chunky catch at the bottom has a crisp action that’s easy to use, even with cold wet hands or muddy gloves, and the spring is well secured and never accidentally pops out. Red and white handles? Red shows up in daylight, white at night, for all you nocturnal gardeners.
