SECATEURS; OR THE POLEMICS OF SHOE WORK PLATFORM APPARATUS

"If we know what secateurs are, do we know what a non secateur might be? Can we not assume that anything other than a secatuer might be a non secateur? Of course! But surely that is an entirely redundant phrase. Things are casual enough! We need not extend such arrangements. No. Better to suggest that the non secateur the title comes from is due to the very forms on display. The hook shape table tops Reynolds puts to work. They do after all resemble secateurs, at least one side of that tool’s pairing of blades. Reynolds’ cast forms are even metallic looking. Indeed they are fashioned out of cast aluminium. So they are in a sense secateurs, blades more than capable of being sharpened and fixed with a spring so that they too might retain the potential pincher manoeuvre so beloved of actual secateurs. Perhaps, then we might call these big over-extended non secateur’s outsized clippers.  Why if these were secateurs just think how unlikely it would be to lose them!"
