For hundreds of years before the pruner was invented in the early nineteenth century, gardeners relied on billhooks for cutting tasks. The small billhook with the ring at the end of its handle was found in a Roman tomb. The second from the right was discovered in the moat of a thirteenth-century castle during an archaeological dig.
