Light­weight alu­minium han­dles, non­stick coated car­bon-steel blades with wavy cut­ting edge. Bump-stop buf­fers on han­dles. Cut­ting edge 8in (20cm). Over­all length 231∕2in (60cm). Weight 321∕2oz (920g). Ten-year guar­an­tee.


Light and nicely bal­anced. Oval grips not en­tirely com­fort­able but give firm hold. Bump stops work but are not as shock­ab­sorb­ing as oth­ers. The blades cut cleanly cov­er­ing large ar­eas quickly on light hedges and hold a line well. They feel a bit chunky for de­tail top­i­ary work, but will do the job. They cope very well with heav­ier stuff like holly, cut­ting right to the tip of the blade. Long han­dles of­fer good reach. There’s no ob­vi­ous ben­e­fit to the wavy blades.


Very rea­son­able price for good all-round hedg­ing shears.
