Darlac Expert Anvil Pruners Put to the Test by Amateur Gardening Magazine

Here at Darlac, we’re often recognised for the quality and value of our tools. Many of our products are award winners, and time and time again our incredible garden tools are put to the test – this month is no exception!

Anvil pruners are perfect for tackling dead wood and tough wood at this time of year, as a bypass pruner will only squash and splinter this kind of material. We were so pleased to have our Darlac Expert Anvil Pruner featured and reviewed as part of Steve and Val Bradley’s Tried & Tested section in the 15 October edition of Amateur Gardening magazine, as they put six different anvil secateurs to the test.

While our secateurs didn’t earn the coveted ‘Best Buy’ spot, they still came in runner-up with an impressive 14/15 marks. Our pruners also come in at half the price of the winning product’s RRP, as well as being cheaper than almost all the other entries, so we’re proud to show that the proof is in the pudding – we always strive to create superior quality garden tools at an affordable price.

We had a great write up for our Expert Anvil Pruners, scoring a 5/5 for its features and specifications, and 4/5 for its performance:

“Part of Darlac’s Expert range, these straight anvil pruners are made from drop-forged aluminium with plastic-coated handles. A black metal central pivot bolt has a screw and key mechanism for adjustment and maintenance. Tension is via a conical (volute) spring between the handles. A black metal locking catch on the lower handle has two settings, fully open or part open, for pruning different-sized stems. The high carbon steel upper blade is coated for rust resistance and smooth cutting. The anvil blade has a recessed ‘sap groove’ to reduce the amount of sap getting into the moving parts.

Good balance and a two-position catch for large or small hands. Clean cuts on both live and dead stems, but the locking catch needed adjusting before it would work every time.”

We love being recognised for the quality products we make, and we look forward to seeing them being ‘put to test’, because we know we’ll stack up! Thank you to Amateur Gardening magazine for showcasing our garden anvil pruners.
