Hand Pruners

Pruning your plants, shrubs and trees is necessary if you want your garden to be healthy. Choosing the proper type of pruner is key if you expect to get the job done correctly. Hand pruners come in one of three varieties, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Making sure you use the kind of pruner with which you feel most comfortable and can make clean cuts will help ensure good prunage


The anvil pruner uses a sharpened wedge that presses against a flattened metal anvil surface. This pruner works by the blade pressing the cutting material against the anvil and then cutting the material as it is forced downward. These pruners are typically small and hand-held, with grips designed for easy use. They are designed to cut twigs and small branches. Anvil pruners are also used for removing dead plants and woody growth, though they are sometimes difficult to use in tight spaces.


Ratchet pruners are essentially a modified version of the anvil pruner, but they use a mechanical ratcheting action that allows for easier use. Like anvil pruners, ratchet pruners use blade and anvil-cutting technique, but the blade handle, once depressed, does not open up to release the material. This allows you to cut the material in small steps, with the blade locking in place after each so you can then extend the handle again to its full size and still get maximum leverage. Once the cut is complete, you can release the blade to cut again. These pruners are ideal for people with arthritis or other health concerns that do not have the strength to muscle a cut with bypass or anvil pruners.


if you look at a common pair of scissors, you'll see that it has two blades, each of which pass by one another when you close the scissor. This is the same principle that the bypass pruner uses. These tools also have two blades, usually semi-circular in shape, that cut the plant material by passing by one another and forcing the material against the edges of both blades at the same time. These pruners usually have one blade that is much duller than the other. The dull blade primarily serves as griping surface, while the sharpened blade provides most of the cutting action. These pruners are popular and provide clean cuts. Large, two-handed bypass pruners are used to cut larger branches and stalks that anvil pruners would otherwise be unable to cut
