Magic secateurs are a Farming tool obtained during the Fairy Tale Part I quest, they are the only weapon able to damage Tanglefoot in Zanaris. When fighting Tanglefoot, the damage done is based on the players' Farming level instead of their Strength.
They are unique in the fact that they are the only farming tool which can be wielded. Either wielding or having the magic secateurs in the player's inventory while harvesting allotments, herbs, and hops decreases the chance of the plant losing a "life" when harvesting. They increase yields by 10% when Farming from allotments, herb and hops patches.
If lost or destroyed, they can be replaced by talking to Malignius Mortifer and paying 40,000 coins. This includes purchasing another magic secateurs if a player had added the magic secateurs to the tool belt.
