Our stylish and tough pruner has been carefully crafted and offers the ultimate in comfort and performance. This traditional pruner comes with a chromium-vanadium steel blade (Cr-V) for durability and resistance to corrosion. Chrome is a very hard metal, and adds hardness to steel where vanadium is a brittle metal, adding toughness. The end result is a steel that holds a cutting edge but doesn’t go dull after repeated use. The quick release lock is very easy to use and the handles are finished with non-slip vinyl grips.
