The lifetime warranty is nice
The Husky 8-inch Anvil Pruner has mixed results. I do like the lifetime warranty that comes with it and the rust resistant blade. It has a unique spring to keep the pruners open, but I question the longevity of the design. It’s definitely a small pruner only. I tried larger branches, and it took a lot of effort to cut through them. It is lightweight, and I also like the safety switch. It’s very easy to lock closed and carry in my pocket. The handle is not comfortable at all. I had to keep readjusting my grip with each cut. Others may like the handle design, but it wasn’t for me.

Great garden snips.
They are sharp and I love the serrated straight edge so it never slips. The grip and tension is just right for precise snipping without making your hand tired. I really like the weight and ease of use. They are a quality product that make nice straight cuts every time. Plus I can keep them in my back pocket without worrying about poking a hole in them since they lock closed and are not very pointed.

Light duty pruning
This pruner was heavily used for the first few weeks to take on small plant and branch work. They are comfortable to use and the lock is easy to engage and disengage. Ultimately I purchased another pruning tool that had a different non-cutting side because this one gummed up with plant detritus easily and dulled, requiring more work than I had hoped.

Husky 8 in. Classic Anvil Pruner Shears
The anvil pruner is my preference over the bypass type which can twist causing the blades to spread apart. The Husky pruner has a comfortable PVC grips, easy thumb activated safety lock, and compression spring to keep it open. The carbon steel blade with non-stick coating should stay sharp and clean. With the lifetime warranty I may get the bypass pruner for my wife, her favorite.

Makes Clean Cuts Using Light Mechanical Action
This pruner worked well for me except for some minor deficiencies. The anvil blade was sharp and the anvil is serrated to reduce slipping. The anvil is adjustable. Out of the box, the anvil is set to cut a maximum of 5/8ths of an inch. By loosening the lock screw, it is possible to reduce the bite range for smaller cut requirements. The handle grips are molded to the tool and between the handles is a spring that expands to keep the anvil blade open. It is possible to store the tool in the closed position with a red plastic slide lock. The pruner makes clean cuts but can require an anvil adjustment to prune smaller diameter vines. Otherwise, smaller diameter vines have a tendency to fall off the anvil and into the pivot gap. Also, I noticed my hand would creep up on the handles and I would lose leverage. With practice, these problems should go away.

Excellent pruner
The Husky classic steel pruner cuts easily and is well-made. The handles have a comfortable non-slip grip. The red lock/unlock switch is easily operated with a flick of the thumb. I prefer this anvil style pruner, because it doesn't get bent out of alignment like the standard overlapping pruner blades tend to do. Also, the teeth on the base helps to keep the branch from slipping during the cut. Fully hardened all steel blade and handle. Lifetime warranty. Made in China.

Ergonomic issues force you to reposition your hand on the grips with each cut. Frustrating, wastes time and is unsafe.
We enjoy gardening and often need strong anvil pruners to handle thicker branches. We hoped to like these, especially since other pruners in the Husky line-up are some of our favorites, but these just didn’t work for myself (average-sized men’s hands) or my wife (small hands). They have good leverage, and cut ok, but releasing the blades causes your hand to slide up the grip, forcing you to reposition for every cut. See pics. At best it’s inconvenient. At worst it’s a safety hazard as your hand slides closer to the blade each time if you don’t pause and reposition with each cut. Perhaps if the handles had molded finger grips you could maintain your hand position, but they don’t. Worst of all, it had difficulty making clean cuts on thicker branches (within its stated limits), possibly because of the serrations on the anvil. And the screw holding the serrated piece onto the anvil kept loosening with each cut and eventually fell off along with the serrated piece. Husky 8 in. Classic Anvil Pruner, Model # Husky-16

This is a great pruner for trees and shrubs. The straight edge has teeth to grip the branch and the sharp edge bites down hard and straight. No more sideways slips that leave the branch looking mutilated. It has a lock to keep it closed and comfortable handles that work well without gloves. Best shears I have ever owned.

This pruner cuts larger sticks than my bypass cutters
I got this as a second pair of pruners. My daughter will be living here this summer, and I spend so much time in the garden, I decided to buy some extra garden tools so we can work together. I have no complaints about my bypass pruning shears, but, rather than purchasing a second identical pair, I decided to try these Anvil Pruners. The handles feel comfortable in my hand, and I can easily use my thumb to lock or unlock the blades. The upper blade stops on the lower, wider jaw instead of passing by it like a scissor. The lower jaw has two rows of nubs surrounding a central depression so the upper blade does pass the top of these nubs. The lower jaw holds the twig firmly during cutting.so I find myself cutting twigs that I normally would have gotten out my loppers for. They also work well for trimming lantana, including very small sprigs. However, deadheading California Poppies and Gazanias is problematic because the hollow, fibrous flower stems don’t always cut through. Some just bend around the blade. I suppose I could adjust or sharpen the blade if I wanted to use them for deadheading these flowers, but I have my shears for that. Visually, these pruners look bulkier than my somewhat spindly bypass cutters, but they actually weigh less (7.5 oz versus 8.7 oz). They are well balanced and stay in the pocket of my gardening tool belt, but don’t disappear in the long pocket of the overalls I sometimes wear during big projects. Slide the red button up to unlock the blades or down to lock them.

Smooth and precise operation!
These Husky 8 in. Classic Anvil Pruners are very easy to operate. They have a red safety catch so you can close the pruners when not in use. The blade is very smooth and precise in operation. The handles are easy to hold onto and the non-slip coating on the handles makes them very comfortable to hold. They have a maximum cutting width of 5/8" so as long as what you are cutting is at that or less, you should find these a pleasure to use!
