Cutting with anvil secateurs

Correct cut

Incorrect cut

Place the sharp cutting blade at the base of the material to be cut so it is flush with the main stem. Squeeze decisively.

Never make a cut with the anvil blade flush with the main stem as it will leave a snag.

Squeeze the sharp blade through the stem on to the anvil blade to make a clean cut without bruising and crushing.
