The double-cut secateurs make the blades converging towards the centre of the branch to be pruned reducing the effort and providing a clean cut. There is no wood shattering: this helps the tree to heal much quicker. For this reason, these shears are particularly suitable for pruning fruit-trees. The blade unit is made of steel with a high carbon content and it is hot forged and tempered with heat treatment. This model is designed for big hands.
