These Bypass Secateurs are ideal for delicate and precise pruning. Bypass blades work on a scissor-like cutting action with one blade ‘bypassing’ the other. They are best used on younger growth as they provide a very clean cut, essential for maintaining a healthy plant or shrub. These robust pruners are suitable for regular use and ideal for a larger sized hand. The ergonomically designed handles have an integrated thumb rest for safety. They have an internal spring mechanism and a central locking mechanism. The non-stick blades can cut through stems up to 22mm thick and the upper blade is fully replaceable.
