There are secateurs and there are Burgon & Ball bypass secateurs. These precision cutting tools appealed to us because of their performance, durability and the fact that they are bright orange - never lose a pair of curiously green coloured secateurs in green undergrowth again!
Designed and manufactured in Sheffield, the steel centre of the UK, by the world's largest sheep shear manufacturer, these secateurs use a bypass action to produce the cleanest, healthiest cut in live stems up to about 2.5cm in diameter. The blades are constructed in precision ground, high carbon steel which deliver high cutting performance and lasting sharpness long after other secateurs have blunted. The tool also features a sap groove to stop blades sticking together whilst in mid cut and an easy release, secure blade lock. The striking orange handles provide a contoured cushion grip over alloy handles.
Supplied with a replacement blade and spare spring.
To keep the blade in top condition sharpen regularly and wipe down with oiled cloth after use to remove dampness which could cause rust.
