this shear is a very sharp pruning shear and lightweight and easy to handle. would definitely recommend it to friends. it's cheaper than equivalent shears from other companies.
The handles are perfect for me; as my hands are small. The blades cut the smaller branches really well.
I really enjoy shopping at sears dot com. I recently purchased these pruning shears for my son they are very comfortable in my hand and had a small swing bar in the back of the handle to lock it closed. I like them so much i got myself a pair. I will continue shopping at sears dot com.
