This is my second pair. I absolutely love these. The rounded tip is super safe...I stick them in my pocket and never have to worry about them. I use them for all my deadheading, light pruning chores. I am a weekend home gardener so I am not using them heavily every day. I am also a woman and they fit my hands perfectly.
I am a florist and purchased 3 pair of these. The blunt tip is nice so no one pokes themselves, the blades are sharp and stay sharp. The drawback is the spring in the middle isn't secure, comes out and is nearly impossible to put back in the holes. Be careful too, not to get your fingers pinched at the pivot point.
