PRUNE: The shears that shovel

PRUNE: The shears that shovel - student project

It should come as no surprise that we’re big fans of multi-purpose tools at Quirky. That’s why we’re crazy about Prune, a 2-in-1 gardening tool that combines the functionality of a hand-held shovel and a pair of shears in one elegant design. The spring-loaded, locking handle allows you to effortlessly transition from pulling weeds to sniping hedges in seconds.

A Quirky inventor many times over, Peter Wachtel, submitted the idea for Prune after realizing just how many tools were required to complete simple gardening tasks. It took 1,530 community influencers to bring it to life, and there’s still room for more.
