After a few years, I lost my first pair in the woods. I looked for them for several weeks. Unable to find them and now a month has passed and I miss them terribly. So I ordered another pair. They are great for deadheading, the handles are comfortable and they are just the right length. I also ordered the holster and it makes it very convenient for me to carry them with me all the time in the garden.
Bought one like it in 1995 from you, then in 2010 an ex-friend stole it to cut wires ! These are very precise and I use to trim small seedlings, harvest beans, tomatoes, pickling fumes, cut sisal string, etc. Also great for trimming flowers.
I probably own 8 different styles of pruners, but these simple scissor type shears are perfect for deadheading whispy plants or very small flower heads, especially with their shorter length.
I bought these scissors because they are identical to the ones that are loaned to me when I do volunteer work at our local botanical garden. I looked for these locally but couldn't find them but was happy to see them on your website at an affordable price. They are small making them easy to use and very sharp. They'll cut almost anything. Great little trimmers!
I have been looking for a replacement for a pair of beloved shears that I broke. These shears come close, but don't have the super-pointed end that my old shears had; which may be a good thing, since I do remember a few finger punctures and cuts from the old shears. I use these shears on orchids. During repotting, being able to reach into the root ball and cut out dead roots, or into tight upper growth and trim out dead pseudobulbs; sharp, slim, pointy but strong shears are a necessity. These shears have everything but the pointy, so they do work well for me.
These shears are a must for anyone who does deadheading, cuts flower stems or just wants the sharpest, handiest little pair of garden scissors you'll ever own. The handles "give" a little so your hand doesn't wear out; the blade is long enough to reach into plants and stays sharp. Just the perfect garden helper.
