I bought this because of the handle. It cuts just as well as any normal brand pruner, but it's nice to have a handle that won't slip if while you cut. It works well.
Bought them on sale but I should have stepped up to the more expensive units. They are not very good at pruning a 1/4 to 1/2' branch. Will likely return them.
The blades separate quickly, which means you’ll break the stem and then have fibers of bark hanging between them. You’ll need to use a second hand to pull it open. To top it off, the blades are not sharp enough to cut those remainders. I paid 3.99 during a promotion and they’re worth not even that.
I b ought these for my lady friend for her gardening. They have the craftsman name on them and they look like they will hold up as well as any other tool that is branded with the Craftsman name.
A good economical pruner, fits my hand comfortably and is holding it's edge well. Nice and sharp for good clean cuts and smooth functioning mechanism.
The pruner does the job for me. I do not have large hands, and found them easy to use. Cuts neatly.
Flimsy, doesn't cut well, you have to spend a lot of strengh to cut. Lots of friction in the spring. Feels cheap. Big issue is the spring starts to stick after a short while using.
The aren't the most sturdy but they seem more than sufficient to prune small branches that they are meant for. Very sharp and good ergonomic design. Good value.
