I purchased a house in the last year with trees in need of pruning. Being a Toolmonger, I’d rather prune the easy limbs myself. Also, the tool looks pretty easy to make. The only interesting piece is the chain that cuts in two directions. Has anyone ever used one of these?”
When I first saw these, my first thought was, “When you’re done cutting, won’t the branch fall on your head?” But I’ve never used one. Have you? Let us know in comments.
