National Trust Topiary Shear
Hand-forged in Sheffield, the high-carbon steel of this topiary shear is precision hardened and tempered for maximum life and edge retention. The blades are double hollow ground, meaning that only the blade edges contact each other as they close, for minimal resistance in use and easy blade edge maintenance. The blades are finished by fine grinding for a smooth edge, giving the cleanest cuts for optimal plant health, especially on buxus (box).
The ‘double bow’ design of the handle gives a softer squeeze than some topiary shears, for comfort during prolonged use. The single-handed operation offers superior cutting control, leaving the other hand free to ‘fluff’ foliage as you work, to achieve the perfect shape.
Supplied in a stylish box, this topiary shear makes a thoughtful gardening gift.
