As a brand that has been manufacturing cutting tools and equipment since 1876, ARS has an impressive amount of industry and technical knowledge. Based in Japan, the firm has been at the forefront of innovation, leading to the creation of new tools starting in 1876 with a knife designed to cut tobacco.
The brand’s long history in the sector and unrivalled experience means you can expect hand tools that are made to the highest quality standards, long-lasting, and are exceptionally well crafted. It’s these attributes that have led to ARS being a key tool supplier for over a century and also picked up National Awards along the way – an achievement few rivals can claim to match.
The ARS philosophy ensures that throughout the entire manufacturing process the product is quality inspected. Their steel surpasses the most demanding of Japanese industrial standards before being moulding through its thermal treatment and impulse hardening techniques - used to extend the blade life of products by up to three times the normal usage. These methods, coupled alongside industry experts in design, ensure the product is both high in performance whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable to use. It’s led to innovations in the trades, ARS, for example, designed and launched the first pull-saw which has now become the standard and most recognised pruning saw in the arboricultural industry and many others.
While ARS works across a range of industries, including industrial and cooking, it has an excellent reputation for developing specialist tools designed for professionals in the arborist and forestry trades, all of which are crafted to make jobs easier to complete. The Award Winning ARS range of tools includes saws, pruning shears, scissors, hedge shears, lopping shears, long reach pruners, maintenance equipment and more.
We have an extensive collection of ARS hand tools for you to choose from, so you know your essential items can be relied upon.
