This shear is designed to help you rapidly cover large areas, since its long tapered blade, end curvature and bevel angles are optimized for high volume cutting as well as detail cutting.Corona’s 10-1/2-inch hedge shear is clearly designed with professionals in mind, but whether you’re a seasoned pro or a weekend gardener, you’re sure to appreciate the features this tool offers. The 10-1/2-inch forged Coronium steel blade is slant-ground for a narrow profile and can be resharpened. The top blade is serrated for easy cutting, and the bottom blade boasts a limb notch that holds branches in place while you cut. The high-strength aluminum handles are lightweight and designed with a convenient elliptical shape to make your work easier. We have to admit–we’re really wowed by the neoprene ShockStop shock bumpers: side by side with other bumpers we’ve tested, they are distinctly superior in effectiveness and durability. This hedge shear is also available in an 8-1/2-inch model. Limited warranty.
