i use these as a general purpose scissors , so for everything i do in bonsai. and they never let me down
First impressions seem to be great in terms of look, feel, sturdiness and quality. Looking forward to seeing how these scissors perform over a longer period of time.
These shears cut cleaner than the usual pruning shears and are sharp enough to cut rather than tear. I bought these to replace a pair that I have had for 30 years. I trust these will last a similar time.
