I love my Felco pruner and my Japanese clippers equally well and use both of them constantly. I've lost a couple of the black clippers when I set them down in the garden and forgot where. Even garden pants with sturdy side pockets designed to hold tools like these are no match for sharp points being shoved in and out multiple times during the gardening day. So this last Christmas I treated myself to the Tool Belt from gardener/blogger/author Diane B. who sells a few carefully "curated" tools on her site.
The belt came wrapped in red and black tissue paper with matching ribbons. In the accompanying envelope was my receipt and and a hand-written message from Diane noting that the tool belt would "soften up after a few garden days." I was glad she added that message as I was concerned that I couldn't get my Japanese shears into their pocket as securely as I'd hoped. She was right; it didn't take long for me to be able to get both tools into the belt nice and secure. I love being able to work and always having my two favorite pruners with me. And I don't think it makes my butt look too big!
Just in case I forget to put the black pruners back in their pocket immediately, I've attached a "ribbon" of pink plastic tape to the handle making them easier to see on the ground.
