    I purchased a pair of these pruning shears weeks ago and have not stopped using them! I was going to buy yet another pair of standard gardening shears when I decided to make the investment in a professional grade tool. I am glad that I did. They are very high quality, sharp and comfortable to use. The way the handles are made makes them easy for any size hand to use. I also think that they would be an excellent gift for anyone who loves gardening.
