- Excellent power-to-size ratio
- Quality handle allows for a good grip even when your hands get sweaty
- Perfect for everyday deadheading of flowers and trimming small branches
- Well-made product that holds up well with frequent use
- Good value
- These pruners won't be able to cut through thickets stems and branches (which of course they aren't intended to)
- After using the pruners, wipe off the blades with a damp cloth and let them dry for a few minutes before you slip the cover back over the blade. That will help the blades stay sharp and last longer.
Not only are they extremely lightweight and easy to handle, but the extremely narrow fine-tip "pruning" point gives me unbelievable control when it's really needed -- like clipping a loose thread from a garment, clipping the yarn end as close as possible after weaving it in, and my personal favorite: cutting felt and flannel with scientific-like precision! I once bought a Betty Lukens bible flannel board set with over 600 little pieces that had to be hand cut out of the flannel they were printed on. If you can picture teeny tiny little hands with even teeny tinier little fingers on many of the people characters, you can imagine what an imposing task this could have been. But with these amazing little snippers and their teeny tiny little amazingly sharp tips, I was able to cut out each and every piece with absolute precision. Quite frankly, I was utterly amazed.
Since then I've found more uses for these than I ever dreamed, although I still use them primarily with my sewing and crocheting. Do I love them? Well, let me put it this way: this is the FIFTH pair that I've purchased. I got tired of moving the same pair from here to there depending on my needs so I decided to buy a pair and keep one in each place that I normally would need it. And at the price Amazon offers these for, it was a no brainer. Oh, and you may have noticed I haven't mentioned their pruning capabilities, but that's only because I am not a gardener, sad to say--just never had any luck in that department--but I can only imagine that they probably work beautifully in that regard as well.
One last thing to mention: these snippers are made with a sliding orange button that locks the blades closed when not in use -- and I highly recommend taking advantage of it. One of the main reasons these work so beautifully is because the blades are incredibly -- and I do mean incredibly -- sharp. Please be careful! And of course it goes without saying to keep them out of the reach of little ones. That said, should you decide to purchase these, I can't imagine any scenario where you won't be completely happy and satisfied with your purchase. Hope this helps!
I use these for various things in my garden.
1. dead heading flowers
2. Cutting flowers.
3. Trimming leaves.
4. Harvesting herbs.
5. Trimming harvested herbs.
I've been told that they are great for getting in close to your buds when trimming your Cannabis harvest. I bought these for that purpose, and when my State finally allows medical marijuana patients to grow their own, I'll be ready.
Meanwhile, I've used mine primarily for harvesting the different herbs I grow in my garden. Lavender, Sage, Colt's Foot, Comfrey, etc. - it works well on them all. I'll cut in the morning, trim them up, and then hang them on my drying racks. They've come out well all the time.

This is my second pair, and not because they don't last, but because I lost my first pair! Watch, I'll find it now! I won't care though, having a backup is good. But I bought these asap because I didn't want to do without them.
The mechanism is so nice, and easy on my hands which have some joint problems. One of the reasons I chose these originally is because I have a similar Fiskars sewing scissor, and this lived up to that product.
Care tip: clean them every time. Don't let sap and juices build up on the blades, and they'll reward you by staying sharp.
