Crew Mini Snips - Matte Black

$8.99 NZD

"...fantastic little snips for trimming plants back or taking cuttings. The feel great in the hand and are easy to use" Kristin O'Reilly

Crew Mini Snips in matte black are superb for trimming and propagating indoor plants. Such a good size. Perfect for delicate work and soft-stemmed indoor plants. I use mine for accurate trimming for all my little guys like String of Pearls, String of Turtles and Pink Bubbles, and all my small to medium indoor plants with softer, bendy stems like my Pothos, Philodendron, Peperomia, Syngonium and more. Great for getting in to fiddly places, such as snipping off yellow leaves.

They're too small for the chunky stuff like Monstera, so best saved when your usual secateurs are just too big and you need something small for accurate, close-up work or bendier or more delicate stems. If you've ever been in to sewing you'll be familiar with these as they are also used as thread snips.  

How big are they?

Just over 10cm long. Blade length is a smidge under 4cm long. The clever 'U' shaped plastic handle springs them back open after every snip and you barely need apply much pressure to close them to cut. Nice and easy. Universal for right or left hand use.

Basic care  

I know they're cheap but that doesn't mean they are intended as throw-aways. Give the blades a wipe clean after use (hydrogen peroxide is a good option for sterilising between plants), and apply a drop of oil every so often on the blades (open and close a few times to distribute it). Clipper oil or sewing machine oil will do the job. They will actually last a surprisingly long time with a little basic care. Best stored clean, dry and oiled.

Cheap, but they get the job done

No, they aren't high-end, fancy-pants, Japanese or German steel, sharpened to a scary fine edge, or anything extra special really. But they are super practical for delicate work. Don't try and attack woody stems with them or snip wire etc (like plant ties), or you'll end up notching, blunting or damaging the blades. Remember when propagating you want to keep your snips clean.

No More Accidents

Love these for sniping spent leaves & flowers without the risk of accidentally cutting the wrong stems.

Mini snips

Great little inexpensive snips for quickly and easily removing old and yellowing leaves. Just pop them in your pocket so you can use them as required

Good for light weight

Not as robust as I had anticipated but very handy for lightweight trimmings and reasonable cost for what they are.
