    A unique design with Softgrip® touchpoints makes pruning stems and light branches up to 5/8" diameter more comfortable.

    Extremely disappointed in these pruners. The open grip is nearly too wide for my hand, have to hold them slightly closed. They will not open after cutting. Have to pry them open each time - and they have only been used twice. Oiling did not help. I am returning these to the store. Fiskars - you need to redesign the weird spring mechanism.


    I can barely grip the pruners when they are in the open position. I am a woman, but my hands are not especially tiny. The odd spring sticks, so I manually have to push the handles to the open position after most cuts. The few times it has worked by itself, it snaps back with such force that it slams into my fingertip. Broke the fingernail on my ring finger down to the quick. My husband tried oiling the pruners but it didn't help. For the first time ever, I am disappointed with a Fiskars product.
