These are excellent sturdy economic hedge shears with wavy blade edges that trap branches and reduce slipping during cutting. Weighing 2 lb 14 oz, they provide a wide-angle opening that requires minimal arm movement. Fiberglass handles, padded handgrips and an adjustable blade-tension knob make these good-value shears. 9" stamped, medium carbon-steel blade; 25" long overall.
B. These light-weight, light-duty shears are designed for tender growth and detail work. Don't expect them to trim your cedar hedge, but if you're looking for trimmers that are comfortable to wield with minimal arm fatigue, these weigh 1 lb 8 oz and do very nicely on light topiary, small hedges and grass. The curved handles allow you to keep your elbows closer to your body and reduce the tendon stress that can result from repeated use of wide-angle pruning shears. Comfortable and convenient for sculpting work, they have an integral tension-adjust knob to maximize cutting efficiency. 7-1/2" stamped, medium carbon-steel blades. 22" overall.
