These snips are very popular in Japan and ours are made in Sanjo, which is a centre for blacksmithery and metal working.
They are carbon steel forged, so although these snips are designed for lighter use, they are robustly built with the ability to cut live material up to 4mm in diameter. It's also worth noting that Japanese steel is hard and sharp and the snips should not be used to cut wire, plastic or hard woods, because these can damage the blade edges. Cutting diagonally, rather than straight across, causes less stress on your tools.

Please note that Genus cannot be held responsible for shipments that take longer than those noted above as actual shipping time is out of our control.
Most courier companies and postal services will try to deliver the package twice if there is nobody in at the time of the first delivery attempt. Genus cannot be held responsible for any non-delivery of orders due to failed delivery attempts and it will be your responsibility to arrange further attempts with the courier service or postal service or collect the package from their local depot.
Countries outside of the UK may be subject to additional duties to be paid. As the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you reside in.
For some countries, you are able to pay the duties and taxes at the checkout. Where this is not available, payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival. If you choose not to pay the duties to release your order, the order may subsequently be abandoned by the courier and made non-refundable. However, Genus Gardenwear will make every effort to ensure the parcel can be shipped back to the warehouse and refunded. Shipping and handling fees may, in this case, be deducted from the refund.
By law, Genus Gardenwear is required to state the correct amount paid for any outgoing international package. Any requests to change this information will be denied.
