The Fiskars Lop-N-Saw is two tools in one. Itís not only a lop; it also has a 6-inch saw located in the handle! Itís light weight at only 2 pounds, but it still strong enough to get the job done!

This is another great product by Fiskars: the Bypass Pruner! This handy little thing has a soft-grip handle that reduces discomfort and also provides a non-slip surface for safety. This pruner is also made of materials that are built to last.
