What Is It?
 

It's unclear whether this item from the Lee Valley antique tool collection was originally intended as sheep shears or as a gardening implement. What is clear is that they are well suited to and have commonly been used for gardening tasks such as cutting grass, trimming topiaries and clipping small hedges. The vintage spring-action shears are 12" long. The slightly angled blades allow the user to keep knuckles away from foliage while cutting.
