Pruning ShearsIf you are serious about lawn and garden maintenance, these pruning shears from Fiskar are a must.  Made from hardened steel, these shears will cut through almost anything effortlessly, up to 5/8 of an inch.

The shears have a coating on them to minimize gumming up from debris and sap.  If you’ve ever had cheap shears without this feature, you’ll know how frustrating it is to have to constantly stop to clean them.

These Fiskar shears also come with a lifetime warranty, meaning you’ll never have to buy another pair.

Overall:

Great Shears

They are pruning shears so I don’t get too excited but they do what they were made to do and they do it very well.  I’ve cut through branches much bigger than they are rated for.  I don’t know if the wood I’m cutting is softer than normal but I have had no problem at all.

Don’t gum up

The last pair of shears I had gummed up constantly. Mind you, I’d had them for a number of years so I don’t know how these will stand up to the test of time but they are a lot easier to use than my old ones.  I let the husband use the old ones since they take a lot more strength to get through even small branches and twigs.  Definitely a good buy.

Not as good as old ones

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like Fiskar has ‘trimmed’ their quality a bit.  I’ve had a few other Fiskar products in the past and they seemed sturdier than these.  I’ve only had them for a few weeks and they do the job and seem fine, just don’t seem as hefty in my hand as the older models.  I guess time will tell if they stand up.
