Before placing flowers in a vase, it is important to remove excess foliage from the stems, both to limit the organic matter that stands (and decomposes) in the water and to remove any harmful thorns. This 6" long stem stripper is popular with florists because its large, spring-loaded handle and finger holds provide significant hand protection with a secure grip for both right-handers and lefties. It is also kinder to stems than many other stem strippers. Just insert the stem, squeeze the tool and drag it down the stem.
Made of fiber-reinforced polyethylene with non-rusting aluminum blades, this is an efficient, easy-to-use tool. Made in USA.
