Many deciduous shrubs can be pruned once the leaves have fallen in order to remove less productive, older wood or dead and damaged stems. The blades of bypass pruners can be forced apart on very hard stems, so anvil pruners are an essential tool. They have a single sharp blade that cuts down onto a flat edge, like a knife on a chopping board, and are excellent for pruning smaller woody stems of pencil thickness and dry, dead growth.
Most of the anvil pruners being able to cut up to 3⁄4in (20mm). Choice can be varied and also very personal. For instance, the weight of the tool, your grip strength, and what feels right for your hand size are all factors to consider. Check that what you’re buying is suitable for right and/or left handed users. If you have a lot of trees and shrubs and prune regularly, consider an ergonomic, curved shape and soft grip handles with an easy to use locking mechanism.
