A metal hedge trimmer. The unit consists of a double set of triangular shaped cutting blades. There are 4 pairs and one single blade. The pairs move against each other thereby acting as shears. There is a wooden handle half way through the trimmer with a metal arm sleeve at the very top. A handle is used to rotate the toothed wheels - one large, one small - against each other and they in turn move the teeth in a shearing motion.
