Extremely tough with sharp blades that last!

Lifetime warranty. Ready to take on the toughest shearing tasks, these blades are made from strong high carbon steel that holds a sharp edge. Then the blades are finished with a hard chrome plating to resist corrosion. Long 2-inch blades tackle flower cutting, dead heading, and seasonal perennial cutback with ease. Sturdy aluminum handles with a non-slip vinyl grip. Conveniently squeeze to open. 2-inch cutting edge; 8.625-inch overall length.


  • 8 & 5/8" long overall
  • 2" cutting edge on the blades
  • All-steel construction; handles are steel with a non-slip coating
  • Blades open to 1 & 1/2" wide (although that is not necessarily the cutting capacity)

Product Features

  • The Squeeze-To-Open latch is unique; just squeeze the handles together, and the safety lock holding the blades together "un-clicks" itself, releasing the blades

Very sturdy, but light wrote

I really like these and carry them with me all the time while working the yard. They ARE NOT made for cutting branches probably more than a half an inch, but, are perfect for trimming and pruning. Very sturdy and sharp and "needle nose" is great for getting small branches in tight locations.

Use mostly for maintenance and cutting of dahlias. Sharp pointed blade good for delicate cutting in tight places. Weak spring keeps them from opening as designed due to sap build up. Stronger spring would make them a five. Let me know if one is available.

I've tried several hand pruners with long narrow blades for finer work, like deadheading, but they all had some reason I decided I couldn't use them on a regular basis. When I bought this pair I had high hopes. Within the first hour of use, I discovered they quickly were coated in sap, and the spring was too weak to open them again after every cut. I bought a slightly stronger spring (which required I fabricate new rubber plugs to hold that spring in place, and this solved the problem very nicely. These pruners have become my standard "go to" choice for light or tight applications such as deadheading past flowers, and light pruning on shrubs such as yews. They will do heavier things, but I have to use discretion because a co-worker used them and broke the bottom blade trying to cut a branch way too thick for these pruners. They will cut branches, say, up to a quarter inch or slightly more, but you want to use the blade as far back in the bite as you can to minimize the chances of breaking. I love the squeeze to release latch. I can open them and close them with one hand. I also made my own leather holster to accommodate the longer, and significantly more pointed blades. I have since lost one of the nuts and bolt that holds the blades to the handles, and am improvising a fix. I suggest you purchase extra blades and hardware for quick fixes; to keep you working when something happens. This is worth it to me because I rely on them so much. However, the price is so affordable I am ordering a spare pair for back-ups. I will fabricate the spring and plugs for them as well because that helps so much. Note: the spring replacement ought not be TOO strong or your hand will tire during extended use. I love 'em.
