Yard care — much like car and motorcycle maintenance — is an easy way to unlock flow state and fall into a beautifully hypnotic, meditative state. Especially with help from sharp, accurate Niwaki tools.

The name to know in the space, the company was founded by Jake Hobson after working in a traditional plant nursery in rural Osaka. They produce gorgeous essential pieces designed for sprucing up the greenery in your yard and keeping your indoor and outdoor plant selection looking its best, from drop-forged and hand-finished single-handed gardening clippers to a carbon steel gardening blade. Each is made the right way and presented with minimalism in mind.
