In the early 1900’s the founder of Löwe invented the anvil style cutting shear (blade contacts soft anvil), a cutting method experiencing revived popularity for it’s efficiency, power and low maintenance. Although bulky in years past, modern metals and casting methods have greatly streamlined this pruner into a true cutting marvel. Although no longer the only maker of anvil pruners globally, Löwe of Germany clearly remains the leader in quality and precision. Of the 3 types of pruning shears (anvil, bypass and parrot-beak) the Löwe plant-friendly anvil method cuts most efficiently, even with a dulling blade! Like cutting carrots on a board, the knife of a Löwe anvil pruner snaps through wood without twisting or side torsion, unlike the bypass pruner’s scissor-action which, even when razor sharp transfers stress directly to the tools axle. Beyond sharpening and occasional lubrication, Löwe’s high-quality pruners are extremely low maintenance and with all parts easily replaceable.
Nip and tuck like a master surgeon taking advantage of our pointed blade and anvil that can reach into the tightest of spaces. Unlike other pruners the Löwe’s Series 5 pruner nestles it’s spring inside the head where no twig can reach it. Small anvil pruner with straight handle and straight, pointed blade. Maximum cutting diameter 5/8" (16mm).
