Tool or Gardening Product

Corona 7-Inch Pruning Saw
Lightweight and razor sharp, the Corona 7-inch pruning saw is an indispensable tool for the home gardener. The tempered steel blade folds into a pistol-grip handle, making the saw an easy fit in hip pockets. The saw cuts on the pull stroke, giving the gardener precise control, and whetstone-ground teeth make quick work of every pruning chore.
