Here is why:
1) Excellent: Lemon tree's fast growing green branches with stickers but no leaves. You can actually hear the quiet "snnpp!" sound as you cut away the branch. This is clearly the kind of cutting this product was made for.
2) Pretty-Very good: penny to nickle diameter sized branches, both old growth and new. Some of the reviews indicated there might be problems with older hard wooden branches. These were, obviously, a little harder to cut, but the shears cut with little to no problems. There is such satifaction when the branches come off easily, and the tree limb inches higher, or suddenly there is light where there was dense bush growth before.
3) Doable, but not good: palm fronds. Cutting through old and falling over dying palm leaves/fronds is hard. So hard in fact that it required 3 or 4 tries coming from different sides of the frond, and much effort to get through th middle. Plus, while cutting and twisting for this frond, I bent the shears, (didn't know you could do that) such that the blades did not close all the way (??!!!??). Fortunately, I had to do some more cutting, and that pretty much bend them back. The blades close now, but there is a little catch. While the width of the fronds are still within an acceptable size, these shears are clearly limited for this purpose.
4) 6 in one hand, 1/2 dozen in other: The grips, while quite comfortable, do not necessarily stay on the handles. My very first use (the lemon tree, the bushes, the pine tree branches, the palm fronds) lasted about 20 minutes. Within this time, the grip on one of the handle started sliding off. I pulled it back up, and it stayed attached (for now). I don't know if there needs to be more adhesive appied, or whether this is a sign of more problems to come, but if you need a product whose "fit and finish" are beyond reproach, keep this tidbit in mind.
Conclusion: Not bad, but these are not top of the line shears, nor are they intended to be. They can do small jobs very well, but "small" can be a relative term, and in this case, does not apply to palm fronds. They CAN cut quickly, completely, and comfortably on things that do fall within its scope.
At first, they worked fine. The grip feels good in my hands (I do wear gloves when I use them) and the blade fits nicely through the fence and is easy to direct. I used them for 3 to 4 hours on one weekend and for another hour the following. By the end of what would be the 5th hour of use, the blades were so dull I can no longer cut cleanly through a 1/4" stem. Now, I was only using them on small (less than 3/4") plants as described -- never roots, never in the soil.
They were good while the edge lasted but I feel they should go more than 5 hours of use before needing sharpening.
Extremely sharp top edge will cut even the finest blade of grass but they do not know the difference between plants and skin, so if you are careful, they will serve you well. I really like the fail safe locking slider that prevents them from opening accidentally. The grips are nicely padded and just the right size.
I have smaller weak hands and these seem to fully open just to the right place so that I can clip rather quickly without the need of shifting my grip. I can cut for extended periods without my hand tiring.
They are pretty much maintenance free except I always wipe mine off then give them a quick spray of wd-40 just to protect the metal blade. Wipe off the excess and put them back in the reusable package until my next chore.
I'd say that if you plan on using these for general gardening, cutting flower stems or thick weeds, these bad boys will tear through those tasks. If you need to cut thicker items, these will also do the trick but likely wear them out much faster. When my pair dies, I definitely plan on re-ordering the same pair.
