A pruner is fashioned with narrow, pointed cutting blades. It has hardened bolt and nut which ensures that both the cutting blades are well-adjusted. Rubber cushion and shock absorbers provides smooth, comfortable working and soft closing.
There are basically two primary types of pruners available at present, viz., pruner with bypass blades and pruner with anvil blades. Both these pruners serve almost the same purpose, but differ in functioning. In the former one (i.e., bypass blade pruner), the blades move across each other to make a sharp and clean cut; while in the case of the latter (i.e., anvil blade pruner) a thin sharp blade is pressed onto a flat and static blade.
