TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Y
Be it known that I, Lswnnncn CAMPBELL, of Marengo, in}tb e county of Calhoun and State oi -Michigan. have invented a new and useful Improvement in Pruning and Hed e-Shears; and I do declare that the following is a true and accurate description thereof, reference being hadto the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, and being a. part of this specification.
The drawing represents my invention'opened and ready for operation.
I The nature of my invention consists in the peculiar construction of the cutting-blades of prnning shears,
whereby their efliciency is considerably increased. 1
In order to accomplish this end, I construct a shear-blade, A,-which may be secured in any suitable manher to any proper handle,-B, and provided with avcurved cutter, C. Upon the blade A is pivoted, at D, the other handle, E, to which is pivoted the conuectin -arm,-F, attached at its opposite end by a proper pivot, to the other cutting-blade H, which is also pivoted to the blade A by means of the fulcrum I. This blade, H, is also provided with curved cutter J, and hook K','wh1ch is furnished with e. cntting edge at L; and is designed What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure byiLetters P atent, is-
The cutting-blades C and J, the latter providedwi'th cutting-hook K, when constructed as described, and operating in combination with the handles B and E and connecting-arm F, substantially as and for the purposes set forth. I
