Saboten makes many specialty garden tools. These Cut and Hold shears can cut a stem and hold onto it instead of watching it fall in a a tangle of thorns (roses) or lost under the dense canopy of leaves (tomatoes). It saves time searching for what you just pruned. It will securely catch items up to 4 lbs. Use to cut roses, harvest tomatoes or to prune. Item just cut remains firmly in the gripper.
