Need to trim small dead growth? Use these Anvil pruners for dead growth, small logs or cutting back growth from the winter. The blades are constructed from heat treated steel that have a non-stick Teflon coating that allows better cutting, and allows the blades to glide through the dead or dying growth and helps to prevent gumming up with sap or debris and prevent rust. When not in use the blades can be locked to help prevent injuries and keep the blades sharp. Equipped with comfortable nylon grips you can use these anvil pruners with less discomfort. Add these to your gardening tools.
