This reliable pruner is ideal for a variety of general pruning tasks. A fully hardened, precision-ground steel blade stays sharp longer, and a rust-resistant, low-friction coating makes cutting easier. A self-cleaning sap groove keeps the blades from sticking, and the handle includes non-slip grips. All-steel construction provides long-lasting durability.

Top Customer Reviews
> Cuts cleanly through branches up to about 1/2", albeit that takes a strong grip.
> If your grip is weak, or you want to cut thicker branches I suggest short loppers such as Fiskars 15 Inch PowerGear Super Pruner/Lopper (7972) or ratcheting pruning shears such as Power Drive Ratchet Pruning Shears - Ideal Garden Hedge & Tree Clippers - Ratcheting Hand Secateurs and Tree Pruners Provide More Cutting Power Than Conventional Anvil Pruning Hand Tools and Garden Scissors
> For easiest and longest use, keep the blades dry and oiled. WD-40 spray is the easiest method
> Eventually (years or hundreds of uses) the (top) blade will get loose and the pruner will not cut so well. Just tighten the upper bolt, test, tighten some more, etc. until the blades close tightly, but the blades will still open when you release your grip
> CONS: I find only one shortcoming I can find is that there is no easy way to attach a lanyard---so, no easy way to hang the pruning shears from a hook---or with a carabineer from a belt loop.
PRUNERS vs LOPPERS
> Normally, pruners are best for stems and branches up to ⅜" diameter, and loppers are best for branches greater than ¾" diameter. In between, other consideration come into play.
> Pruners are used 1-handed, loppers are used 2-handed. If you need to hold a stem or branch while you cut, or you want to collect the cut stems as you work, a pruner is your best choice. Loppers are less tiring if you are cutting alot of thick stems, particularly if you have a weak grip for some reason. Loppers (particularly extendable handle loppers) give you far more reach, so that you don’t have to bend over, or resort to a ladder. The reach can also help protect you from the thorns of roses, etc.
OTHER DESIGN OPTIONS: Unless you have a specific reason to choose another design, pruning shears should be simple and anvil in design. The choices are more complex for loppers.
BYPASS vs ANVIL: Bypass pruners are analogous to scissors, with two blades which move past one another. Anvil pruners are analogous to a cleaver and cutting board, with 1 blade and an anvil to which the blade cuts. Bypass pruners usually cut more cleanly with less crushing, which is usually better for the plant. Anvil loppers may not easily cut completely through very fibrous stems.
SIMPLE vs COMPOUND, GEARED, or RACHET: Geared, compound, and rachet designs give you more leverage, but that usually is not desirable in pruning shears—but either requiring you to open the shears wider, or squeeze them multiple times to cut through a stem. For small or easily-cut stems, simple pruning shears are easier and less tiring to use.
