Niwaki Crean Mate Tool Cleaner
Please join the wait list for this product.
Crean Mate Tool Cleaner is incredibly useful for cleaning up secateurs, shears and knives, removing rust and grime.
Crean Mate removes resin, rust, and other gunk from blades of secateurs, shears, and knives. Simply add a few drops of Camellia Oil to the blade (or water works fine, but you ought to oil later anyway) to the blade and use as you would a rubber eraser. Test before using on prize blades as this product has a roughish texture and might scratch polished surfaces. After scouring, wipe tool and and store in a dry place.
Niwaki founder Jake Hobson is a leading pruning specialist who studied pruning, tree-training, and rootballing at Furukawa Teijuen nursery in Osaka. The owner of a tree farm in Dorset, England, Jake founded Niwaki to bring Japanese techniques he’d mastered to Western gardens. He also introduced an expansive collection of Japanese tools ranging from tripod ladders and topiary clippers to super sharp secateurs and garden scissors. “What everyone appreciated is that although these things are all Japanese, they work just as well in western gardens, and on a whole range of plants,” says Jake. “Tripod ladders, it turns out, are just as useful for hedge trimming as they are for pine pruning; and of course, topiary clippers work just as well on box topiary as they do on azalea karikomi.”
