What Are Pruning Shears Used For?

Designed for power and comfort, our hand pruners are available in a variety of different handle sizes and cutting capacities for easy, efficient removal of dead or out-of-place branches.

All Fiskars pruning shears feature fully hardened, precision-ground steel blades that cut all the way to the tip and stay sharp – even through heavy use. A low-friction blade coating reduces gumming and improves rust resistance, while easy-open locks protect the blade during transport and storage. Choose from bypass style blades for clean cuts on live branches or stems, or anvil style for dead growth.

For thicker branches and stems, using garden shears with a mechanical advantage can help maximize your power. Power-Lever® Pruners feature compound lever technology that multiplies leverage for up to 2x more cutting power, while PowerGear® Pruners have a patented gear technology that allows for 3x more power, for dramatically easier cuts. PowerGear2™ Pruners offer an even more enhanced, patented design with modified gears and a mechanism that optimizes your cutting power in the thickest part of the cut. Forged Pruners offer superior strength and durability, while the ratchet design on our Ratchet Pruners is ideal for heavy-duty cuts, compounding force with a few squeezes to help you power through the branch without strain. Smooth-action Pruners are ideal for lighter pruning tasks, thanks to a self-lubricating bearing drive, while Angled Pruners feature an angled head, reducing wrist fatigue for easy cuts at awkward angles. For ultimate durability, Fiskars Pro® Pruners feature intelligently curved blades with PowerArc™ technology for 20% easier cuts, resulting in quality performance under all conditions.
