These are great pruners, sometimes you don' need them to open up so much especially when clipping smaller things. You have a slider on the side that lets you adjust the opening to your needs. These are also very comfortable and don't hurt your hands, nice soft handles. I like that the spring is inside rather than those weird silver things that look like they will pop in your face. I also like that you can sharpen these because the switch lets you open then enough to get a sharpener in there and the other side is rubber so you don't have to worry about two blades. These also have a small hole for hooking on a wall or tool board.
The adjustable hand size also limits your cutting radius. But if you need a bigger cut you can always adjust it to bigger. They have a ridged bottom which helps to grip the branch while cutting. The blade is sharp and cites easily. They lock closed for easy storage. They are a better choice than those pruners found in box store that are orange and black. I like them.
I found this anvil pruner online while searching for a replacement. I loved the professional look, so I decided to give it a try. This tool is SLICK! What a clean cut! I just completed 3.5 hours of Spring pruning to clear out the dead/dry branches and stems in my yard and I really enjoyed using it - my palms don’t hurt, my wrists don’t ache and I feel like my pruning looks like it was done by a pro. Very lightweight and comfortable to use. Another cool feature - the tool can easily adjust to accommodate different hand sizes, so my 80 yr old mom/gardener was able to try it out for a few snips and had no issues being able to make a clean cut. I feel like this was a great purchase.
