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 equipped, 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 held in the player's inventory, they function as normal secateurs without the crop yield bonus. 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 they have defeated the Tanglefoot during Fairytale I - Growing Pains. If players lose their magic secateurs during the quest, they must take the required items back to the Nature Spirit.
Magic secateurs do not count as a weapon when travelling to Entrana, as there is a hops patch on the island. Additionally, because of the stab and slash bonuses, they can be an alternative to the Dramen staff on the island when using melee.
