Pruning Shears, Anvil Blade (18.5cm)
This pruning shear is an anvil pruner with a chrome plated steel blade for strength and sharpness and a steel reinforced plastic anvil for strength and durability. The pruner also features rubberised plastic grips which provide comfort over long periods of use. Made in Taiwan.
Anvil pruners work by using the blade to push hard stems and branches towards the anvil and crushes them before snipping off the crushed wood. This helps with cutting tougher woody stems. As plant tissue is crushed when using Anvil pruners, they are more suited for dead or hard branches and stems rather than green ones.
- Prevent the spread of plant diseases by disinfecting the blades with alcohol after trimming diseased plants.
- Keep the shears in great condition by washing them after each use, remember to oil the metal parts lightly after washing to keep them from rusting.
