Kick-back on the wrist is prevented by the anvil system and their curved shape allows the user to keep the branch still during cutting. The universal grip of the shears allows both right-handed and left-handed operators to use them. The handle and counter-blade are made of hot-forged light aluminum alloy lifetime guarantee against breakage. The surface anodizing treatment makes the pruners more resistant over time. The steel blade, made with high percentage carbon, is hot-forged. The cavity in the blade reduces friction and increases branch penetration. These pruners are completely interchangeable and adjustable, just like all our manual pruning tools.
