- 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.
I wonder if they are factory discard, or what would be called "seconds" or "defected".
In the photo with the three pairs the one on the right is my cherished older Fiskar and the other two with the broken tips are what I received from this seller. So, in my opinion you will be much better buying the scissors from a reputable fabric store. I have been using the same Fiskars for many years. They do get blunt after a long use but never had the tips broken.
These are small and lightweight, but will cut through most materials, I use them as all around scissors and am not afraid to cut most anything and they retain an edge for a long time. They’re size makes them great for fine detail trimming, but not too small to tackle your bigger tasks as well.
The padded comfort grips mean no sore hands like hard plastic handles can cause, it’s soft rubber grips make them easy to hold on to, even with wet hands.
The tips have a ground down nose making them very sharp, it’s helpful for poking holes to start cuts in hard to get at places, that’s why the orange sheath is included.
They are spring assisted opening, (see picture) so all you do is squeeze making it less work. The latch in the middle keeps them locked, then the sheath covers the sharp tips for safety.
They’re low cost and great design coupled by excellent craftsmanship and a Lifetime warranty makes these the BEST SCISSORS MADE!
*A quick, easy scissor sharpening technique is to cut fairly fine grade sand paper into strips.
I own many Fiskars. Sharp and usually well made.
The handles are soft to the touch and don't slip in my hand. I ground the point off of the tip having stabed myself with another pair of Fiskar scissors with a pointy tip. Unless you are doing surgery with these, rounding off the tips will save your hide! The little orange rubbery tip cover will disappear sooner or later. Although, being international orange helps one spot it amongst green leaves.
I noticed that the little plastic anchor for the locking button has already started to wear off where it first engages the button (see photo) after just a dozen locks. I don't expect the lock will last long. Lifetime warranty will no doubt cover this but they will go back to Amazon if they don't hold up after a few days.
I have ordered other brands of shears just encase these don't hold up.
Overall they will cut!
