These are the pruners used by professionals throughout the world. Each person at our nursery packs a pair in a holster on their hip. They are of unsurpassed quality and Swiss made precision workmanship. Solid forged metal alloy handles are complimented by a hardened cutting blade. A hardened bolt and nut assure exact adjustment of both the cutting and anvil blades. A rubber cushion and shock absorber provide smooth working and soft closing. All major parts are replaceable and the blade is easily sharpened. They make a smooth cut every time. Easy on the trees and shrubs and on you.
