Description

These tools are characterized by short cutting edges ended with roundish points to avoid wounds to the fruits surface; they are used cutting the stalk of the fruit. For the orange fruit harvesting it is preferred a simple rotation of the fruit around its stalk with the hand to avoid injuries and wounds with too long stalks.
