Fiskars Machetes & Saws

SORT BY:
Professional landscapers and home gardeners alike will find that having the right tools for the job makes the work easier. Staples carries an assortment of professional-grade lawn and garden tools from top brands such as Fiskars. These hand tools cut through branches, brush and tough debris to make clearing and maintenance simpler.

Explore the Benefits of Machetes
Machetes, or brush knives, are often associated with intrepid explorers hacking their way through the jungle. There's a reason these knives are the tool of choice for cutting through dense foliage. The shape is designed to combine the actions of an axe and a knife. The weight of the tool adds power to each swing, while the sharp edge cuts cleanly. This unique design makes the blade perfect for slicing through tough vine plants such as blackberries and kudzu.

Brush knives feature tempered steel blades. Tempered steel provides springiness, which allows the blade to flex, eliminating some of the recoil. This means that your arm won't experience as much fatigue and stress from the blows. The steel construction also resists wear and the flex of the blade prevents breakage. The cutting edge of the blades are wedge-shaped and slightly blunted. They can be honed or sharpened as desired, but a blunted edge is safer. Some models offer serrated teeth near the base for sawing, which can help to extricate the knife from tangled vines and branches. Models range in size from 18 to 24 inches. Length should be chosen based on the user's height, as balance is an important consideration when swinging the blade.

Billhooks Pull their Weight
Machetes are excellent tools for clearing brush, vines and undergrowth, but they require plenty of elbow room for an efficient swing and work best on plants with a small diameter. When clearing debris in tight spaces or dealing with larger branches, billhooks are the perfect tool for the job. These blades are shorter, generally measuring around 8 to 10 inches. The blades feature wide hooked ends, which 'wrap' around small trees and branches to provide precision cuts. The hooks can also aid in pulling fallen branches and brush away from the work site.

Choose Serrated Blades for Large Projects
Saws are a necessity for any clearing or tree maintenance project. There are many varieties, designed for everything from pipe cutting to wood carving, but for general cutting and tree care, a pruning saw is the tool of choice. These feature hardened steel blades that prevent flex, which keeps the power centralized on your cut and prevents binding. Sharp serrated teeth bite firmly into wood and remove material as they cut. These blades make quick work of limbs up to six inches in diameter. For close work, a handheld model provides control. Extendable models should be used for pruning high branches. Both handheld and extendable models may offer reversible handles, which allow you to change the position of the blade to approach cuts from beneath or from the side.

Brush knives, billhooks and pruning saws work well in tandem. They offer a convenient means to maintain trails, remove underbrush for fire control, clear brambles and overgrowth and prune trees and bushes.
