Nip Those Dead Branches In The Bud By Using Fiskars 5" Bypass Pruner

Well if you do not know it by now, wintertime is on its way and all of your garden bushes and rose bushes are screaming to be trimmed. If you do not have a pair of hand held pruners then let me suggest a pair, this pair from Fiskars can be found at any big box store for right around fifteen dollars. I really do not think that it matters in this case which name brand that you purchase, because they all do the same job. I have used several different types through the years and so far I have found these to fit the best in my hands for comfort ability. You can usually find some type of these at any home improvement or hardware store. But, we purchased ours from Lowe's for only $15.00.

Description
These are a total of 8-1/4" (long) x ¾" (wide) x 2" (wide) and only weigh 6.3 ounces. These have one black blade and silver blade, one is coated 1-7/8" curved and has a non-stick coating and one is hardened steel, when you squeeze them together they have a non-stick coating all over the blade and this will help with the cutting affect of the two blades making a smooth cut. You will not have to worry if these will work properly, if you are left or right handed, because I have tried them with both hands and they will do just as good of a job in either hand. When fully opened they have an 1-1/2" wide opening. Between the handles there is a 1-1/2" x 3/8" steel coated spring. This is all held together by a stainless steel locking nut and bolt. Each of the handles have a rubber coating to help in the comfort department and to ease any hand stress caused by long time use. Located at the end of one of the handles there is an eyelet that makes storage an ease. One of the other features that this has is a plastic locking lever, which will keep these closed when not in use. These are also an excellent choice, because if they ever get dull, bent, or chipped in any way there is a life time warranty on them.

Uses
I have been using these type of pruners for over twenty years and I really should have purchase another pair long before now, but my old ones still working sufficiently. That is when I noticed a nick in the blade so I went to Lowes to get my new pruners. Mine came with no pouch and to keep them sharp and rust free, I always spray them with some kind of lubricant to keep them from rusting over the uses. I have used them on my rose bushes and the low hanging branches on all of the trees in our yard. I have used these on branches as thick as one inch in diameter but they are made for 5/8” branches and I have had no problem loping them off. These will also stay in the locked position by simply flipping the little plastic lever forward. The only time that these get uncomfortable to use is when I use them too long. On my old pair this would have caused a blister, but because of the rubber coated grips that this pair has, I have prevented getting any.

If you want to have nice roses next year then I suggest that you use these before the winter gets here. These come in very handy also or trimming your Christmas tree.  I have given a pair of these to my father and he is always using these every chance that he gets. These are also very durable and can take a beating, I have dropped these off of my roof and they were still intact when I got down off of the roof to check on them. The blades never even bent or chipped, I think that the coating helped to protect them. The blade is very sharp, so you may want to keep these out of the reach of children. They are powerful enough to chop off little fingers.

Warranty
These come with a lifetime warranty so once you purchase a pair of these you should never have to get any more unless you abuse these on purpose.

Conclusion
I can highly recommend these for any one that has a garden or just needs something to trim, perhaps some roses that you just got from the store. Even if these ever do break, then you are not out any real money, fifteen dollars is not a lot of money to spend on a pair of these, even if you end up throwing them out. These will even make a good Christmas present for a family member or friends. You cannot go wrong with these, they are a five star product.
