A great pair of have any duty grass clipping shears by Black and Decker. These are well made and have a 13" blade. They cut chick weed stems with little effort and regular grass clipping is a breeze. They are sharp from tiip to end so cutting around walks and concrete is easy too. The handle is comfortable and does not slip from your grip. The slicing movement is east and not cumbersome. I would recommend these clippers to others. Great buy too.
This 'Black & Decker 13" Grass Shears' is a really nice idea but poorly designed/constructed. While the blades are perfectly sharp, the nut that holds everything together flew off into the shrubbery within minutes of its first use. I replaced this nut two times (from the hardware store). If you over tighten, the shears jams up; Under tighten and the spring loaded device ejects the nut within minutes of use. Its hard to find a middle ground. I like the concept, but I will look for a better model.
I used it for 10 minutes and then it started to catch while closing because a catch groove had formed in the soft metal blade.
durable and easy to use.
