The Hooyman 1003 Ratchet Pruner is designed for the hunter. A simple push of a button detaches the saw from pruner. The hardened pruning blade holds its edge much longer than non-hardened blades. The tapered blade design is for added blade strength and integrity. 1/2" elastic strap holds the pruner to your hand for maximum maneuverability and support. The detachable pocket folding saw has a high carbon steel saw blade. The push button, lockback saw locks blade open or closed. The perfect tool for cutting shooting lanes, pruning trails to your stand, brushing in your blind.
