These Heavy Duty Pruning Shears are light-weight and extremely sharp. Perfect for pruning all types of live and dead branches up to ¾” in diameter. They are basically prized by professional gardeners because they are uniquely designed to open in a wide “U” shape to direct the branch deep into the critical leverage point for greater cutting power with minimal effort. For maximum cutting power, the strong ergonomically designed elastomer handles are slightly offset from the blades.
YardShark hand pruners are manufactured from the finest high-carbon Japanese steel. Their thin durable blades are made using a new pressed steel technology: the steel is pressed, heat treated for strength (tempered), and hand-sharpened. The cutting edges are then tempered again to ensure long-lasting sharpness. The resulting thin blades are much more durable and stay sharp longer than blades produced using traditional drop forge techniques.
