Pruning Shears - Ergonomic Bypass Pruner with Rotating Handle to Protect Hand and Minimize Strain by Gardenbrite

This is an extremely nice set of pruners. I love how the handle rotates around and that it has a finger guard on it. I have several and by that I mean a lot of rose bushes. If you have ever trimmed a rose bush you will understand why I appreciate the finger guard. It is not a total guard and I do still have to wear my gloves but the guard does seem to help deflect the thorns. The blade is very sharp and gives a clean cut to my roses and also to other bushes in my year. My husband even used this to trim some small tree branches and it cut those just as well as my roses. The blades are made of carbon steel, so should stay sharp for a long time and will be easy to sharpen when they do go dull. I like that the blades will be able to be resharpened, I have had several pairs of pruners and basically they are disposable, once dull they are trash, but not these. These do lock at the handle, which is where my only problem comes in at. The lock is pretty hard to get undone, I personally could not unlock them, my husband was able to get them unlocked. For a safety measure this is good, for me not so much unless my husband was there. Even with the lock I love these pruners, and will be using these for a very long time.

The company has told me they have changed the locks to make them easier.

I received this product free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
