Zenport ZJ331 Ergonomic Anvil Pruner, 1-Inch Cut, 8.15-Inches (21cm) Long. A drawing cut against a fixed base plate (the anvil) – the principle developed in the early 1920s and since proven millions of times over – results in a very easy cut, making it a favorite among professional users.
As opposed to bypass pruners, where the blade and anvil blade slide past one another, in the case of anvil pruners the blade comes up against a base plate (the anvil). This principle has the following advantages:
- Better transmission of force
- These pruners are also ideally suited to robust use on harder woods
- No cutting impact and less force exercised during cutting => Protection of the hand and joints
- Low-cost maintenance
