Pruners are a cutting tool held in one hand. It is sometimes called snippers. It has two handles, one connected to a blade and the other to a blunt surface that holds the object being cut. Like the word scissors, is always used as a plural.

It is used for cutting brush, plants and small branches, such as roses and grapevines. Things thicker than a pencil will need to be cut with loppers instead.
