New tools from Niwaki at Glee
Niwaki will be at the Glee again this year with their key product the Niwaki Tripod Ladders. There will also be an array of fine pruning tools, accessories and other interesting and practical tools from Japan such as the Hori Hori and Golden Spade.
New in 2018
Niwaki GR Secateurs
A completely new product set to become a firm favourite this year are the Niwaki GR Secateurs. Hand forged in Sanjo, Japan these secateurs set the standard for quality and value. KA70 carbon steel holds a mean edge, the chunky catch at the bottom and the strong spring gives a reassuringly simple functional feel, and the funky yellow grips show up when you've left them somewhere in the garden. They are recommended for every day pruning, and will last years if kept clean with Crean Mate and Camellia oil, and sharpened with a Niwaki #1000 stone every few weeks.
Niwaki GR Lightweight Secateurs
Great lightweight secateurs that compromise slightly on strength in return for a touch more precision - the slender bypass blade gets into places hitherto the preserve of the daintiest Pro Snips. Ergonomic handle, smooth spring action and chunky lock clasp at the bottom.
Slightly smaller than our regular secateurs, these are the perfect choice for those with smaller or weaker hands, as well those needing the precision that the slender blade provides

New small Golden Spade
Everybody's favourite Golden Spade now comes in a new Small size. Not just that - it fits in the Niwaki Tool Bag. Incredibly strong, lethally sharp, surprisingly light - and golden. What more could one ask of a spade? Ideal for use in raised beds, small gardens and with a narrow head small enough to use in the borders without causing widespread destruction. The comfortable YD handle is made of tubular steel and with a firm tread and rigid steel pipe shaft. You can rely on this spade not to flex or break under heavy use. Golden Spade Small £28.
We designed our new Niwaki Toolbag especially for the travelling pruner. Internal dividers create space a couple of pairs of long shears or loppers and a small golden spade, two smaller compartments for other tools such as secateurs and snips. The padded, water resistant, hard wearing canvas protects your beloved tools from the elements, while the Niwaki-red carry straps stand out at the luggage carousel. Crucially, it fits perfectly between the wheel arches of a Landrover Defender.
Niwaki Tripod Ladders
These wonderful tripod ladders are perfect for hedges, topiary, fruit trees and all other garden and DIY jobs where you need to work safely at height. The three legs and wide base provide incredible stability, even on slopes and steps and lightweight aluminium construction makes them easy to manoeuvre. Sizes range from 4'to 16' with a standard 8' that suits most domestic gardens.
