Definition of anvil pruners

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by talinum:

Anvil pruners have one sharp blade (sharpened on both edges) that cuts against a flat anvil. They rarely need adjusting and the blade is easily replaced. If the blade is dull, it will crush the stem instead of cutting it. It tends to leave a small stub but are unsurpassed for cutting dead wood.
