    same as other reviews. After each cut you must open the blades back up manually. A real pain! Do not buy!

    I was very happy when Fiskars stood behind their product with a very friendly and no hassle policy. The customer service rep I dealt with was extremely helpful and polite. My first purchase of this product was disappointing (see previous review). I was hoping that the new pruners that were sent to me (at no cost) would operate better, but they were just as bad as the first. Still...I do not own a pair of Fiskars pruners that open by themselves. The spring mechanism just does not work. Once again...I will still buy your scissors, but your gardening equipment leaves a lot to be desired.


    Very disappointing purchase. I love Fiskars scissors, but their garden tools leave a lot to be desired. Straight from the package, the spring load will not open the tool. After each cut, the tool must be manually opened to make another cut. This is very irritating and time consuming while trying to work. Even after a slight lubrication of graphite, they still will not spring open. I purchased another Fiskars garden tool with this pruner and it too does not measure up to the cheaper generic brands. I will be staying away from Fiskars garden tools from now on.
