How to use your Japanese tools-

  • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
  • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibers and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
  • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
  • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibers
  • Pay attention to the maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
  • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts

Keep them clean-

Keep them sharp-

New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice they gradually lose their edge.  Use a Sharpening Stone or Twin Diamond File.

  • Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks
  • Sharpen Shears and Topiary Clippers every time you use them - the difference is amazing
