Sorbus International: Unlocking precision and excellence with ARS


In the world of horticulture, precision is paramount, and for those who demand nothing but the best, the ARS professional Japanese pruning range stands as an unrivalled beacon of excellence.


Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, these implements are the embodiment of centuries of Japanese craftsmanship and innovation. If you’re a gardener, arborist, or horticultural enthusiast, here’s why you should consider ARS for all your pruning needs.


Unmatched Precision: ARS tools are celebrated for their precision. The sharpness of their blades is legendary, making each cut clean and precise. Whether you’re trimming delicate bonsai or taming overgrown branches on a mature tree, ARS tools give you the control and accuracy you need. This precision isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s also crucial for the health of your plants.


Ergonomic Excellence: A long day of pruning can be physically demanding, but ARS tools are designed with ergonomics in mind. The handles are comfortable to hold, reducing strain on your hands and wrists. This thoughtful design allows you to work for extended periods without discomfort.


Built to Last: When you invest in ARS tools, you’re investing in longevity. These tools are constructed to withstand the rigors of professional use. The high-quality materials and craftsmanship mean your ARS shears or saws will be with you season after season, making them a sustainable choice.


Versatility: The ARS range doesn’t just offer shears and pruners; it’s a comprehensive line-up of tools to meet all your cutting and pruning requirements. From hand pruners for fine detail work to long-reach pruners for those hard-to-reach branches, ARS has it all. Their selection of saws, including folding saws and pole saws, is second to none, ensuring you have the right tool for every pruning job.


A Commitment to Quality: ARS takes its commitment to quality seriously. Each tool undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets the highest standards. This dedication to excellence has earned ARS a loyal following among professional horticulturists and arborists worldwide.

ARS is not just a collection of tools; it’s a testament to the fusion of tradition and innovation. With unmatched precision, ergonomic excellence, durability, versatility, and a rich Japanese heritage, ARS tools are the choice of those who demand the best for their plants and trees. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a passionate home gardener, ARS will help you unlock your pruning potential, ensuring your green spaces flourish in all their glory.
