Very Nice Pair of ShearsGot these for trimming grass around trees, along edges, and in hard to reach places like under pipes. By using hand shears, I don't have to worry about damaging anything with a powered trimmer, and they're very environmentally friendly too. They have good balance and are very comfortable to hold. The cutting edge of the blades measures 5 1/4 inches. The blades can be used in three different locked positions - horizontally, vertically and on a 45 degree angle. I primarily use them in the horizontal position for trimming grass. They have a great feel to them and ought to last a long time.
Quality ToolAs a fellow who is always looking for tools that will make my life a little easier. I was happy to find these Italian grass shears. I've been looking for another pair to compliment my Saboten grass shears. This way I have a pair when I send the others to Carbondale to be sharpened. These really are nicely made as are any of the Italian tools sold here and other places. These rank right up there with the Japanese Saboten's. The price of them isn't that hard on the pocket when you stop to realize for a few bucks more you are getting a tool that is many times superior to the "cheaper" ones you find in the BIG BOX stores. I believe anyone who has a need for something like this will be happy to own them. I do have Shindiawa gas trimmers but sometimes you not only make a mess but if you bang a gas powered trimmer off of drain pipes and down spouts you wind up in trouble. These trim nicely around and under pipes. I believe they are a great option for places a gas trimmer might cause grief.
