In our opinion, there are none that are better. The premium Pruner is 8" long and is made using the finest forged steel and precisely ground by the in France maker (a medium-sized family company that markets primarily in Europe) for smooth, fast cutting. The real leather grips indicate the measure of respect that the maker insists be given his work. A belt-loop leather real holster is also available to keep the tool at the ready by your side.

The smaller 6" Bypass Trimming Pruner is made from the same materials but the smaller size of the cutting jaws dictates that limited cutting capacity and are therefore not as elaborately ground as are the Premium Pruners. Nor do they need to be as the virtue of this smaller size is its maneuverability and its ability to work in tight spaces during close trimming. Itís a very popular tool for these reasons. This Pruner also has a real leather holster but it has to be carried in the pocket as there is no loop for a belt to be threaded through.

"Jr" Sized Trim Pruner
Reviewed By:   (Torrance, CA) 
Having used the full-sized bypass pruner for several years (still going strong) I decided to get the smaller trim pruner for harvesting fruit and herbs. It may not be as large as the other one but there's nothing light-duty about the way it's designed and built. And boy, its sharp. If you wash the tool regularly with soap and water as another customer recommends, I suggest that you waterproof the leather grips -- the "MinWax" combo oil/wax for furniture is ideal. Be sure the handles are thoroughly dry before applying, a cotton swab is fine to spreading it on, a couple coats may be necessary. Let dry before recoating, and several thin applications are better than just dolloping in on real thick. (the stuff is good for preserving wood handles on garden tools, too)

French Bypass Pruner
Reviewed By:   (Kailua, Hawaii) 
This pruner is truly terrific. It cuts cleanly, and without a lot of effort. Expect the time necessary for tree and bush pruning to be substantially reduced. I recommend keeping it clean by washing with soap and water, and, if necessary, a non-scratch scouring pad (though it can handle a heavy duty scouring pad too). Also, after use and cleaning, try putting a light coat of "Tri-Flow" lubricant on the exposed metal parts, to keep them corrosion free and functioning smoothly.

Great for Household Bouquets
Reviewed By:   (Chicago, IL) 
I like fresh flowers in my house at all times and these pruners are perfect for arranging those bouquets. Very nice feel and perfect size. I have yet to find anything --even Christmas greenery that these pruners don't cut with ease.

Tops In Form and Function
Reviewed By:   (Torrance, CA) 
Have been using mine for about a year, have absolutely no complaints! A relief after being frustrated with shears from mainline retailers that just don't last more than a season or two. I don't understand another reviewer's complaint about his not being sharp, mine could cut newsprint cleanly right out of the box, and still can. Blade is stainless but has a very durable edge, have only had to dress it up with a fine honing stick a couple times so far.

French Gardening Pruners
Reviewed By:   (Bedford, IN) 
I was expecting these pruners to be great. They are not super sharp nor do the blades occlude well; there is a gap. My hand was aching after only a few cuts. They are pretty, and may last a long time, but they work no better than cheap K Mart ones. Sorry.
