These pruners are just right for me. Solid steel construction with non-slip rubber coated handles, heavy duty razor sharp blade, a heavy duty spring, and a locking latch that won't fail any time soon. They are sharp and fit my hand well. These are very comfortable, affordable, and very sharp. I was out doing yard work all day yesterday and the pruners sliced through small branches with ease. It made trimming rose bushes less of a chore! I would recommend it to anyone with the caveat that it should be kept away from kids, as it is as sharp as it looks.
