Super pleased to find these lovely, lightweight shears from ARS. I bought a pair of these years and years ago from a forgotten vendor at the Vancouver CanWest Hort. show but haven't seen them since.
These shears are super-lightweight (just under 2 pounds), really well-balanced, and have a smooth cutting action with shock absorbers between the blades - all of which adds up to extra comfort and ease of use during the continuous days of boxwood hedge and topiary trimming! A great choice if you find other shears too heavy.
The long, ergonomically-designed handles have non-slip grips and the red colour is easy to find if you put them down in the garden. The slightly curved handles are a bonus when working on curved topiary shapes.
