Excalibur pruners

Excalibur pruners The Excalibur pruners were imported to North America in the late 1990's. The similarities to Gerber multi-pliers is apparent, and the tool is stamped with Fiskars patent numbers. At a time when most multitools produced in China were of very poor quality, these pruners like all Excalibur products were constructed quite well.

Jaws are classic bypass pruner style, curved to make branch and stem cutting easier. There is also a wire cutter notch located in near the pivot.

Jaws are spring loaded.

Finish is black oxide.


Each handle is comprised of stainless steel sheet bent into an S shape. This allows the tool to have both outside-opening and inside-opening blades.

The word EXCALIBUR is etched into one handle. Patent information is stamped alongside. MADE IN CHINA is stamped on the opposite side.

Finish is highly polished stainless steel.
