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.
This sleek new design combines awesome cutting power with curved blades and an adjustable, rotating handle that frees hand and wrist from repetitive work fatique. Maximum cutting diameter 1" (24mm).
