I love these garden shears so much, I just bought a second pair.
A few years back I purchased a pair of Fiskars Grips and Holds Garden Shears to use in my garden. They never made it there. I opened the package and used them to cut something around the house and they have had a home in our junk drawer ever since.
They look like a big pair of scissors but unlike regular scissors, these babies can cut through almost anything. I have used them to cut paper, metal, flower stems and so much more and they are still super sharp. They have a molded hard plastic handle in the signature Fiskars orange color and fit well in your hands so they are comfortable to hold. They are made for the garden so the have a serrated blade but unlike a bread knife that has teeth that start at the very edge of the blade, the blade on these is smooth and the serrated part starts up the blade a little so they still make a smooth clean cut on thin materials like paper. The new pair I just bought has a slightly longer blade and they are on a little bit more of an angel than they first pair was. Fiskars also offers a full lifetime warranty on them.
The second pair bought will also not make it to the garden. This pair was bought too be used as kitchen shears. I cook and cut up lots of things like chicken so I needed a strong set of kitchen shears that was sharp and did not bend when I had to cut through small bones. Unlike the other kitchen scissors I have these cut through bones with ease.
Some of the best items I have found to do tasks around the house are products that were made to be used in other places. These would make a great addition to your garden tools, your household tools or your kitchen tools, they are that good.
