We have used these lovely sharp ARS 300 snips for the last 2 years in our workshops and also while coppicing our willow. They are incredibly sharp and have slight curve on the blade to enable you to get in close when trimming baskets or living willow structures.
They measure 6 inches in length and weigh just 90g making it suitable for extended periods of use and as an alternative to secateurs in the garden. Thanks to its ergonomic design, it fits well into the hand and makes the ideal addition to any keen willow weaver’s or gardener’s toolkit.
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.
