Use/Care Instructions

Although Japanese carbon steel is durable, it can chip if mishandled, so use with care.

Caring for your tools:
Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they may, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things.

1. Correct Use:
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 our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers).
- Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts
2. Keeping Them Clean:
- Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a tool cleaner (such as Crean Mate) and water
- Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place
3. Keeping Them Sharp:
New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).

Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks
Sharpen Shears and Topiary Clippers EVERY TIME you use them.
