The concave branch cutter is ver nice and very well made. Elven thought I have to wait for it to be made, I’m glad I did. Great job on making a well made tool. Thank you.
I have only used this tool a few times but it has stayed sharp and with a little care I am hoping it will last a lifetime

Works as it is supposed to. Could use a small spring that opens the tool to make it easier for someone with arthritis to operate. It would be a great improvement.
These are pretty well what you expect: substantial feeling in the hand, weighty enough to feel solid, but not too heavy to cause discomfort over time. Very sharp. I find they really fill the niche for cutting denser, more developed branches with relative ease.
This truly feel like a precision tool and is well worth the coin.
