Fea­tures

Con­toured white oak cylin­dri­cal han­dles. SK car­bon-steel blades. Heavy-duty sheath for blades. Cut­ting edge 73∕4in (19.5cm). Over­all length 211∕2in (55cm). Weight 271∕2oz (780g). Two-year guar­an­tee.

Per­for­mance

These shears have an ap­peal­ing sim­plic­ity. They feel a lit­tle front heavy. Straight wooden han­dles have no grips and gloved hands can slide around a bit, but they’re ideal for smaller hands. The su­per-sharp blades slice through heav­ier ma­te­rial like holly with ease, while the long han­dles give good reach and help when cut­ting straight hedges. Blades are ex­cel­lent on lighter privet and box, and first class for top­i­ary. No bump-stop makes the clos­ing ac­tion a bit harsh.

Value

If you like great per­for­mance, qual­ity and clas­sic looks, these shears are for you but the price is very steep.
