These pruners cut like butter. We personally use these in the shop for any clean up projects! Niwaki tools follow the design of traditional Japanese made tools. Drop-forged from high quality carbon steel (SK grade), these will stay sharp for a long time. They can cut stems and branches up to 1" in diameter. Good for indoor and outdoors!
We recommend to keep them clean and dry between uses for longevity! It can also be handy to sharpen with a sharpening stone before long periods of use or extensive cutting to maintain the blade in the long run. Always follow the curve of the blade when sharpening!
