We have used these lovely sharp ARS secateurs (ARS range – Always Razor Sharp) for the last 4 years to harvest our willow, and also in the garden! Justine uses the 7″ and Alan the 8″. We do a lot of cutting and haven’t needed to change the blades yet! We started out using Felco secateurs but much prefer these, so we decided to start stocking them!
These ARS Professional Secateurs have the addition of a rotating handle. The ergonomic, rotating handle provides extra comfort for the user especially during extended periods of use, dramatically reducing rubbing on the palm and helping prevent blisters. With a single hand ‘squeeze open’ lock system, these secateurs are simple, convenient & secure.
This model is ideal for use in horticulture, orchards, vineyards & landscaping. With blades manufactured from high carbon steel which is coated with a hard chrome plating, these secateurs are very durable. Replacement blades are available.

The Science Stuff:
The ARS Corporation in Japan have been manufacturing the highest quality pruning tools since 1876.
The secret to the superior performance of ARS tools lies in steel quality, design, thermal treatment, grinding & hardening. ARS have developed their own specialised manufacturing techniques that are unique to the ARS range. Many copy but none can match the Outstanding Sharpness and Functional Beauty of ARS tools.
