They will then be able to test various pruners and secateurs to see the differences between, and uses of, the wide range of cutting tools enabling them find the perfect pair for their needs.

Of particular interest at the moment are the ratchet pruners, which have a strong cutting force as well as incremental slicing built into the design, making them ideal for cutting through dead wood or larger branches. The Wilkinson Sword three stage ratchet mechanism cuts the branches in a controlled, manageable stage, requiring less effort than traditional tools and is highly suited to gardeners who are looking to put less effort in, but still get the same results out.

The Ratchet Anvil Pruner benefits from a high strength nylon fibre construction, lightweight construction and soft grip handles. With its three step ratchet mechanism, high quality SK5 non-stick coated blade and 22mm cutting diameter, this pruner powers through woody stems and branches.

Another highlight of the show will undoubtedly be the new Wilkinson Sword Ultralight range, which delivers strong, expertly crafted and stylish garden tools in a comfortable, ultralight package.

Featured within this newly launched range are the Ultralight Hedge Shears, and the Ultralight Bypass Loppers, with an emphasis being placed on low weight, without sacrificing any of the cutting power associated with the highly regarded brand.

The Ultralight Hedge Shears feature an 8? non-stick coated blade, for a clean and defined cut. Aluminium handles provide the combination of strength and low weight, whilst the soft grip handles make these hedge shears satisfying to hold and use. With a total weight of a mere 670 gm, these ultralight hedge shears are perfect to help reduce fatigue. The Ultralight Hedge Shears retail at ?29.99.

The Ultralight Bypass Loppers have also been designed to minimise physical effort and increase efficiency of each cut. The bypass, non-stick coated blade is perfect for young, green wood, with the 25mm cutting capacity providing a precise, defined cut whilst the sap groove directs sap away from the cutting blade. Through the use of strong and lightweight materials this lopper is able to provide the power that you need, whilst weighing in at just 450 gm. The extruded aluminium handles deliver strength and lightness, with the added benefit of soft, comfortable grips, ensuring that you are able to glide through hours of lopping with ease.
