Every rose doesn’t necessarily have to have its thorn — Clauss’s rose thorn stripper lets you remove the thorns before you let your loved ones get pricked fingers. They designed the thorn stripper’s V-shaped jaws to quickly remove the thorns and leaves without damaging the stems.
One retailer claims the tool is made from from stainless steel and is rust resistant — like most marketers they leave it at that, never saying exactly what type of stainless steel. Unfortunately Clauss’s website is silent on the actual material used. They spring-load the tool so when you release the handles, it returns to the open position. If any of our readers know what the tab on the upper handle in the picture is for, please chime in.
The best deal I could find was $3 plus $6 shipping, so you might be better off browsing your local garden center than buying it online.
