Fiskars SmartFit™− A pruner that fits the job in hand
Multi-purpose pruner incorporates comfort and adjustable cutting capacity
New for 2013, Fiskars SmartFit™ multi-fit, multi-task pruner fits large and small hands, and cuts both thinner and thicker branches. A truly versatile tool, the SmartFit™ pruner uses a one click mechanism to instantly double the blade aperture from
12mm up to an impressive 24mm diameter. This ability to change the aperture also make this pruner ideal for harvesting herbs and leaf vegetables such as spinach.
Fits your hand and need
Engineered from durable coated carbon steel to facilitate a smooth cutting action, the optimized blade geometry ensures the SmartFit™ is as capable of dealing with dense branch areas due to its finer shaping.
It is not just the adjustable blade width that is impressive. The lightweight and strong Fiskars FiberComp™ handles are ergonomically designed so as to ensure optimal cutting from a number of different handholds and grips, whilst the Fiskars SoftGrip™ cushioning introduces insulation and shock absorbing qualities.
Pruning can be punishing on the hands, especially for those that are not used to and for the professional who has to do that all day long, and so the Fiskars SmartFit™ offers supreme comfort and unparalleled flexibility in one pruner. complete with plastic storage holder, the Fiskars SmartFit™ Bypass pruner is a great addition to the gardeners’ armory.
Fiskars SmartFit™ pruner is a noteworthy example of the Fiskars’ aspiration to “reinvent” the gardening experience through the use of advanced engineering and materials. We believe that all things, even the simplest, can be made better and smarter so that work in the garden becomes easier, lighter, more efficient and simply more pleasurable – which is ultimately what gardening should be all about.
