The A1 is at once a familiar and standard bypass design, yet with details that set it apart from even the best in the industry. The high-carbon blades are both fully hot-forged and tempered (HRC 58), making them stronger yet also lighter. The aluminum alloy handles, rubber grips, durable spring, and shock-absorbing pads all help to reduce fatigue under even heavy use. The blades are adjustable to assure clean cuts, and parts are available to keep your A1 Pruner working for years. The advanced design includes a grease groove between the blades to allow for constant lubrication.
