This durable, reasonably priced tool is a nice complement to a tried-and-true bypass pruner we’ve carried for years. While the bypass blade makes a clean slice through soft green stems without crushing, this anvil version provides the strength and leverage needed for cutting tough, dry deadwood.
Made of strong but lightweight forged aluminum, it has a high-carbon SK-5 Japanese steel upper blade that can power through woody material. A PVC coating on the handles provides a good grip. Comes with a replacement blade to ensure long-term service.
