The world's first anvil pruning shears launched in 1923. The LOWE 5.124 is our most popular small model, for use in horticulture, fruit growing, forestry, and viticulture. It is particularly good for pruning roses. These pruners can be used left or right handed, for cutting any kind of wood and are similar to the standard 1.104, but smaller and lighter with a pointed blade. It was the LOWE 1 which made the Original LOWE brand and the anvil principle (a drawing cut against a fixed base plate) world famous. Original LOWE pruners are designed, produced and assembled in Germany to the highest standards with a unique hardening process giving the blades an unrivalled hardness and the latest CNC grinding machines, ensuring an outstanding sharp cutting edge. Length: 17.5cm Weight: 175g Cutting Capacity: 16mm (⅝") Spare parts available for all LOWE pruners.
