$108 AUD

1 left in stock.

These beautiful gardening shears feel wonderful in your hand and are a pleasure to use. The forged laminated blades are polished to a mirror finish and come razor sharp. The pressed forged hardened handles have a matt textured finish, that feel beautifully comfortable.

Our Mekiri budding shears are designed for fine work on live plants. Please note that they are not designed for heavy cutting or the trimming of dead wood, and are susceptible to damage if tasked with trimming wire of any sort. 

These 200 mm pruning shears come with 3 different sets of springs. You can choose which spring you would like to use as you decide the level of tension of your shears.

These shears have a genuine leather pouch (black) by the same maker Kobayashi that can be purchased separately.

Please note that these shears need maintenance by cleaning and oiling after each use to maintain their polished edge.

Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recycleable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

We stand behind the quality of our tools. If a tool is found to be faulty or damaged in transit, we will verify the issue with you, and offer a refund or exchange when the problem is brought to our attention within 30 days from purchase. If problems arise outside of this period this policy will apply at our discretion. Where a refund or exchange is agreed upon, we will mail you a paid addressed bag to return your items, verify their condition once we receive them, and then process a refund or mail the new item.

If a tool is purchased as a present or the purchaser changes their mind, we will exchange for stock of equal value or store credit when we are contacted within 2 weeks of the purchase. We ask that the customer covers the cost of shipping in these instances. We will take a payment for shipping over the phone, send you a paid addressed envelope, verify the goods' condition once we receive them, and then mail the new item.

If a tool is damaged through improper use, we encourage you to contact us. We may not be able to exchange the tool, but may be able to offer advice on technique or recommend a more appropriate tool. Where possible, we encourage our cutomers to ask us questions about our tools' use before they purchase them. We can be contacted at info@japanesetools.com.au or 02 9527 3870.

Sorry, we can't exchange gift cards.

Fantastic snips, great workmanship

Purchased these primarily for taking cuttings for propagation. The initial pair had a slight defect, which Japanese tools very quickly rectified. Since receiving the replacement pair a week ago, I've taken hundreds or cuttings and found them to have an incredibly smooth and precise cutting action, with no tearing of leaves at any point along the blades. The addition of a choice of springs, is fantastic! My colleague who also bought a pair, uses a different spring to me and that customability really elevates the product. I anticipate these to take hundreds of thousands of cuttings each year, for a lot of years to come!

Beautiful, quality tool

This is a typical quality tool which comes with additional springs to best suit the hand that is using it. Beautifully packaged, quality design and worth every penny. Consider also a bottle of Camelia oil to keep it rust free and looking great.
