Fiskars Steel Bypass Pruning Shears
For cutting stems and light branches, Amazon reviewers recommend these shears. The product features a fully-hardened, precision-ground steel blade that maintains its sharpness despite heavy-duty use. Meanwhile, the low-friction coating ensures the blade seamlessly glides through wood.
“Really nice pruning shears,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I’ve used Fiskars shears for many years and always been pleased with the quality. I needed a replacement set and bought these, expecting them to have the same excellent quality but also the same sometimes-difficult blade lock that my older Fiskars have. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this new pair has a very simple slide-up-and-lock feature to lock the blades. This requires a simple push with the thumb instead of the old balky and difficult to use locking mechanism that had to be forced into place. Nice improvement, Fiskars!”
