This season we are delighted to offer a selection of fine garden tools from the renowned British firm of Burgon & Ball, which celebrates nearly 300 years in business. This heritage firm uses only the finest materials in its tools: carbon-forged steel for the blades and sustainably harvested (FSC approved) hardwood for the handles, plus a leather hanging loop. They are designed to last a lifetime, and probably to hand down to your gardening great-grandchildren.

A few select tools from Burgon & Ball's collection have been specially endorsed by the Royal Horticulture Society (RHS), Britain's largest gardening organization and charity, as exceptional in craftsmanship and performance. The Folding Pruning Saw is one of these fine tools, and because of its commendation, it comes with a lifetime guarantee! You cannot go wrong adding this fine tool to your collection or gifting it to a special gardener this season.

Every once in a while a new idea breaks through in garden tools, and this Folding Pruning Saw is a great example. Instead of trying to push a heavy saw through stubborn stems or reach overhead branches, with the Folding Pruning Saw, the strongest cut power is on the pull stroke, where you have more control. We tried it on overhead branches the day we got it, and trimming our trees has never, ever been this easy (or felt this safe). Instead of perilously pushing higher in the air while balanced on a ladder, we could securely pull the branches toward us while cutting them, which minimized the risk of overbalancing on the ladder, and gave our cuts more accuracy and precision. No more flailing around!

The secret to the success of this tool is its patented triple cut face design. Each tooth on the curved 6-inch blade actually has three cutting faces instead of one. This way, if one angle isn't just right for slicing through a stubborn vine or branch, another on the same tooth will be! It's incredibly easy to slice right through thick, woody stems such as established Buddleias and overgrown boxwoods, as well as to prune branches.

The Folding Pruning Saw is also a safer tool than many. The blade locks securely into the sheath when not in use, and the ergonomic rubber grip keeps your hand from slipping, even when you're tired. The blade is, of course, carbon-forged steel, and the entire tool comes with that famous RHS lifetime guarantee. This is a must-have tool, a necessary part of any gardener's toolshed. Get one for yourself and one for a friend; quality and performance like this are rare indeed, and must be grabbed when they come along!
