Description: This forged, differentially tempered pruning shear features spring loaded blades that are angled in relation to the handles to create an easier cutting action. The blades have a wider blade profile suitable for pruning trees and bushes as well as topiary, flower arranging and garden maintenance. For safety, a catch is provided to lock the blades in the closed position. The cutting blade is forge-welded from inlaid high carbon "white" steel, Rockwell Hrc56. The master blacksmith then carefully tempers each blade for increased edge life, and hones it to a razor edge. Maximum cut is 1 1/4 inch. Attractively boxed and accompanied by an extra spring. This is the sort of tool that makes working in the yard a pleasure.
