Description

Japan's leading saw manufacturer Gyokucho, decided to create their own adjustable anvil secateurs and after five year of development they created something very unique. They are designed based on the requests from fruit growers and landscapers.

Gyokucho wanted to create a pruner that everyone can use with ease, just like their saws. Anvil type was preferred for it requires much less strength than usual bypass type. It needed to be adjustable so everyone can find their perfect setting. Just like their saw blades the pruner blade had to be extra hardened for long lasting edge and replaceable for easy maintenance. That's the story behind this pruner, "Rakunandesu", which means "It's so EASY" in Japanese.

You can move the lever on the front to adjust the opening of the blade. The spring inside the handle has 3 positions you can change to adjust the strength. Just like their saws, the blade cuts branches like butter and lasts long time. 

1. Adjustable anvil pruner.

Compared to general pruning shears, anvil pruning shears don't put much stress on the wrist. It prevents developing tendonitis.

Unlike general pruners, two blades do not slide pass each other as they cut the material.

To replace a blade, you just need to take off one screw. The anvil can be also replaced by sliding it out. No need to adjust the position of the blade.

The blade and the anvil work just like a kitchen knife and a cutting board. For both right hand users and left hand users.

2. Force is concentrated on the cutting surface.

JP. Patent No. 5547700.

Force is efficiently applied on the material, making it easier to cut.

They are designed in a way that when the blade and the anvil are open, thick materials can fit in at the very back of the opening. You can easily prune big branches.

They give you clean cuts, and they do not damage the cutting surface. So they are great for flower arrangement. You can also use them for grafting.

3. Two steps adjustment for opening angles.

Opening angle can be adjusted depending on the size of your grip.

Women and children with smaller hands or those who can not apply much force can easily use them. If you are pruning just once in a couple of years, size of the branches varies. For working more efficiently, opening angle can be adjusted to two different types.

4. Three steps adjustment for spring strength.

Tension spring is used on Rakunandesu pruning shears. Spring is placed inside the grip, so you do not have to worry about touching it or losing it while you work with it.

Strength of the spring can be adjusted to three different types depending on the user. Weaker spring is recommended for women and children. Stronger spring that's more stretched is recommended for those who want to prune fast. The pruner opens faster this way.

5. Grip and open safety lock.

When you grip the pruner, the lock opens. You can put the lock back with just one hand. Just grip it, and press a hook against your leg or body, and the lock is back on.

Three lock positions of end hook lock.

The first position is if you want to put the lock on with one hand. The second position is with the hook all the way out for not locking. The third one is the hook completely inside the handle for putting it in the pruner case.

6. Light handle.

The weight of the item itself can be the cause of stress on your hand. Alminum die cast alloy is used on the grip, so it's light but can withstand hardwork.

We use elastomer resin on the grip. This allows moderate elasticity.

7. Impulse hardening on the tip of the blade edge.

We treat the blade with a technique called special impulse hardening just like we do on our hand saws.

Impulse hardening is done only on the tip of the blade edge. This prevents blade from cracking.

8. Small hole for putting a strap.

There is a strap hole for working at high place. You can avoid losing the shears by wearing a strap on your wrist. Please take advantage of this hole and use it as you like.


*Replaceable blade and anvil sold separately.

*Totally made in Japan
