Folding Pruning Saw
Perfect for Stubborn, Overhead, and Small-space Jobs! Patented design features 3 cutting faces on the blade, with the strongest cut power on the pull stroke.
Every once in a while a new idea breaks through in garden tools, and this Folding Pruning Saw is a great example. Instead of trying to push a heavy saw through stubborn stems or overhead branches, with the Folding Pruning Saw, the strongest cut power is on the pull stroke, where you have more control. The result is a much more effective, safer cutting action, with less strain and greater precision. No wonder the Royal Horticulture Society endoses this tool and its manufacturer offers it with a lifetime guarantee!
The day we got it, we tried the Folding Pruning Saw on overhead branches. These are always problematic for us, because like many gardeners, we always want to do things ourselves instead of leaving it to the professionals. So yes, we have been known to get on a ladder and saw awkwardly away at overhead branches. Well, trimming our trees has never, ever been as easy, or seemed as safe, as with the Folding Pruning Saw! Instead of pushing away from us to cut, we could securely pull the branches toward us with every pull of the saw. This kept us better balanced on the ladder, and gave our cuts more accuracy by bringing the branch closer to us during the sawing action.
But it's not just the improved 'pull action' design of the blade that makes the Folding Pruning Saw so effective. The real secret to the success of this tool is its patented triple cut face design. Each tooth on the curved 6-inch blade actually has three cutting faces instead of one. This way, if one angle isn't just right for slicing through a stubborn vine or branch, another on the same tooth probably will be! It's incredibly easy to slice right through thick, woody stems such as established Buddleias and overgrown boxwoods, as well as to prune branches.
Even when not in use, the Folding Pruning Saw is a safer tool than many. The blade locks securely into the sheath for storage, and of course it takes up less space in the shed or on the potting bench than fully extended pruning saws. You can toss it into the wheelbarrow and tote it around the garden without fear of injury.
The ergonomic rubber grip of the Folding Pruning Saw keeps your hand from slipping, even when you're tired. The blade is, of course, carbon-forged steel, and the tool comes with that famous RHS lifetime guarantee. This is a must-have addition to the toolshed! Get one for yourself and one for a friend; quality and performance like this are rare indeed, and must be grabbed when they come along! Highly recommended.
