Longer, broader blades than the Snips allowing heavier growth to be dealt with. Precision tensioned blades give a clean cut every time. The SK5 Japanese carbon steel blades are chrome armoured for rust resistance and easily sharpened using a fine grade Diamond Sharpener. The contoured handles have a soft non-slip covering for comfort and safety. The easy to use catch at the bottom of the handles can be operated single handed against the body, leaving your other hand free.
