Looking for hard wearing, heavy duty snips with a long reach? These Barracuda snips will do the job. They have a shorter and slightly more slender blade than our other Japanese clippers, and are more suited to snipping and pruning than clipping.

They are hand forged in Hyogo, Japan from S58C carbon steel, the tips cross over, to allow for years and years of use and sharpening. In case you are curious, they are called 'Barracuda' as the slightly curving blade resembles that of this notorious fish's jawline.

Like all Japanese tools, these garden snips are engineered to be easy on the hand with slim, well-shaped handles and sprung scissor action for single-handed use, and easy on the eye with their elegantly graceful, simple design. With a solid, easy to use catch for safety when not in use, and a robust spring.

Our Japanese tools are handmade and take time to be produced to such high standards. If this item is not in stock, we will have it on order, so please sign up for an email notification.

Materials: S58C carbon steel

L:23cm, blade L:9cm

Spare spring included

Care: Sharpen with a whetstone. Dunk the clippers every so often into a weak solution of bleach or Jeyes fluid, to stop the blades clogging up and prevent the spread of nasty viruses. Use wire wool to scrub off any stubborn leaf resin. We advise you to store and carry them in a holster.
