Correct Usage And Maintenance of Pruning Shears
Fruit tree pruning is an important task in orchard management. Good tools and proper usage, will save time and effort for the entire pruning process. But in daily life, many gardeners use the tools in the wrong way. There are so many fruit gardeners who often complain that the pruning shears he/she bought did not work long, and pruning became very laborious! Or the trimmed cut is not smooth, which is not conducive to wound healing.
Some of the inferior pruning shears do have this problem. If it’s not about the material, incorrect usage is the reason.
People who often cook should have this kind of experience: if cutting meat or vegetables straight down, hands will be very tired after short time. However, If we tilt the knife slightly at an angle, pushing it forward while cutting, job will be so much easier. Isn’t it?
Also let’s talk about daily maintenance of pruning shears. Any sharp tool will become dull if not well maintained. This rule also applies to FLORA GUARD. Although FLORA GUARD pruning shears are produced under strict quality control standards, maintenance is very necessary. In order to make the pruning shears service you longer, please pay attention to timely maintenance and proper storage.
The maintenance of the pruning shears is mainly about the blade, and it can be polished with a thin object such as grinding wheel (#300-#400) or sharpening stone (#150) to make the blade lasting and durable. Please note that the cutting edge on the back should also be grinded accordingly. However, the edge of the other curved blade should be polished gently which helps removing the burrs and dirt of the cutting edge. Sharpened blade will not only make the trimming easier, but also prolong the life of the shears components.
In addition, after the scissors are dried, apply a thin layer with anti-rust oil and store it in a dry place where children cannot reach and avoid direct sunlight.
