We have introduced a sleek purple sheath to complement our Purple Ultra-Sharp Pruner, a customer favorite! The high-carbon bypass-blade system, which has as a flowing, elegant look, offers almost a full inch of capacity, and the upper blade is titanium nitride coated (giving it that "gold" color) to preserve unusual sharpness. The handle is corrosion and sap-resistant brushed aluminum, with an anodized finish. Comfortable in the hand during those longer pruning sessions. One handle is slightly longer than the other, giving you more cutting torque. From blade tip to handle end this Pruner is 9" long.
