If you are looking to make this season’s cutting tasks a breeze then look no further than the Wilkinson Sword Ultralight collection. The range delivers strong, expertly crafted and stylish garden tools in a comfortable, ultralight package, that weighs almost half the weight of its traditional counterparts.

Featured within this award-winning range are the Ultralight Hedge Shears and the Ultralight Bypass Loppers, with an emphasis being placed on low weight, without sacrificing any of the cutting power associated with the highly regarded brand, which has over 100 years’ experience in creating cutting edge garden tools. New to the range this year, and launching in April, is the Ultralight Shaping Shear.


Since their launch, this unbeatable combination has been a real hit with gardeners looking for tools that enable them to achieve clean cuts with the minimum amount of effort. For this reason, they have been popular with everyone from professional gardeners who spend all day cutting and pruning, to more mature gardeners who have found that their regular tools have become too cumbersome to manage.

The Ultralight Hedge Shears feature an 8” non-stick coated blade, for a clean and defined cut. Aluminium handles provide the combination of strength and low weight, whilst the soft grip handles make these hedge shears satisfying to hold and use.  Weighing a mere 670 gm, these lightweight hedge shears are perfect to help reduce fatigue.

The Ultralight Bypass Loppers have also been designed to minimise physical effort and increase efficiency of each cut. The bypass, non-stick coated blade is perfect for young, green wood with the 25mm cutting capacity providing a precise, defined cut whilst the sap groove directs sap away from the cutting blade.  Made from strong and lightweight materials, this lopper is able to provide the power that you need, whilst weighing in at just 450 gm. The extruded aluminium handles deliver strength and lightness, with the added benefit of soft, comfortable grips, ensuring that you are able to glide through hours of lopping with ease.

The new for 2018 Ultralight Shaping Shears weigh in at just 470gm. With a 150mm long, precision ground blade, the smooth and efficient action delivers a clean and precise cut. The compact 450mm overall length ensures greater control when shaping and trimming, aided by the lightweight aluminium handles with non-slip comfort grips.
