Magic secateurs detail

Magic secateurs are obtained during the quest Fairytale I - Growing Pains. It is the only weapon in game that is capable of damaging Tanglefoot. When worn, the magic secateurs increase the crop yield of herbs, allotments, grape vines, and hops by 10%, as well as yielding more higher quality herbs from Herbiboars; when used in the player's inventory, they will function as normal secateurs without the crop yield bonus. Magic secateurs do not increase the yield from harvesting giant seaweed, however.[1] Tool leprechauns located at each Farming patch can store magic secateurs in the normal secateurs slot.

Players can purchase additional magic secateurs for 40,000 coins by talking to Malignius Mortifer, south of Falador. Players will be unable to purchase them from him until you have defeated the Tanglefoot during Fairytale I - Growing Pains. If players lose their magic secateurs during the quest, you must take the required items back to the Nature Spirit.

Magic secateurs do not count as a weapon when travelling to Entrana, and thus may be used on the hops patch south of the balloon. Additionally, because of the stab and slash bonuses, the magic secateurs are an alternative to the Dramen staff on the island when using melee.
