It is that time again to trim the grape vines. Vineyard trimming is mostly done by hand, making it basically garden trimming on a large scale. I carry all the tools I need on one utility belt.
Full wine utility belt for field trimming wine vines.
In the belt: Two types of hand pruning shears. One for normal canes, with a weak spring that will not fatigue my hand. And a second multi-leveraged shear for cutting thicker material easily.
In the belt: A collapsible saw. This is used mostly to cut off the heads of vines that died.
In the belt: Lopping shears. This is to cut off thicker canes or cordons too thick for either of the hand shears.
You may have noticed. I like Fiskars products. And for many reasons. One main reason is Fiskars hand tools are very ergonomic and easy on the hands to use. Another reason is they are well made tools that simply last.
