Wilkinson Sword will be unveiling a premium range of cutting tools at GLEE 2017, the UK?s leading garden retail event, as well as celebrating some of the brand?s most successful products from the past year.

The Elite Cutting Collection, launching at the show this year, is perfect for those looking to upgrade their tired old tools with something a bit special. The range is comprised of a refined selection of premium garden tools ready to provide cutting-edge performance, precision, and comfort. Individually crafted with superior Japanese SK3 steel blades, strong dual cast housing with integrated shock absorption system and lightweight extruded aluminium handles with plush contoured handles, these tools have been created for the gardener who is passionate about quality, durability, and design.

Within this beautifully designed collection are eight tools, to cover every cutting need you have in the garden, all benefiting from the use of top quality materials and craftsmanship.

The Elite Bypass Loppers feature plush soft grips, and are also available in a telescopic option (with the handles extending from 67cm to 100cm), as do the Elite Hedge Shears, with the telescopic version featuring a 220mm cutting blade length and handles extending from 80cm to 113cm.

Completing the collection are four pruners. Each of these pruners have a cutting capacity of 22mm, with the same non-stick Japanese SK3 Steel Blades as found on the loppers and shears, with precision ground leading edges. The strong and light dual forged aluminium bodies make working with them easy and sustainable for longer, with the shock absorption rubber bump stops complementing this.

Each pruner is, of course, created with its own benefits, to suit a range of tasks. The Elite Adjustable Bypass Pruner has an adjustable handle opening to suit all hand sizes. The Elite Straight Head Bypass Pruner benefits from a traditional straight head design, perfect for trimming young, new growth.

The Elite Angled Head Bypass Pruner is designed in such a way as to provide better accessibility and increased comfort when tackling hard to reach areas. Finally, the Elite Anvil Pruner is perfect for attacking dense, hard and dead wood, with its sap groove reducing the build up of residue on the cutting blade, keeping it cutting for longer.

Joining the elite needn?t cost the earth, with the tools retailing from ?29.99 to ?69.99.

There really is something for every gardener within the Wilkinson Sword range of garden tools, and each one carries the reassuring Wilkinson Sword 10 year guarantee.
