A good set of topiary clippers is a real must to keep your topiary specimens looking great.
There are a number of very good topiary clippers on the market, but in my opinion, the best are made by Tobisho and I particularly like the Hakaribasami model.
I first saw these in the Independent newspaper last October and dropped no end of hints to my daughters about what to buy me for Christmas. They arrived christmas morning and I must say I have been absolutely delighted with them. They have 5" spring action hand forged steel blades, well balanced and colourful too.
