These are the best pruning shears we've found out there. If you have weak hands they are perfect to assist in using them by design. The company (The Valspring Group) is a great small company with personalized serve and outstanding follow-up to ensure you know how to properly use and maintain your pruners. You just don't see customer service at this level these days. Would highly recommend the product and the company.

These pruners are the best ratchet pruners I have used in the last 20 years! For nipping of small branches up to 1" limbs these are the sharpest, neatest, most clean-cutting pruners I have come across. The pruners are better than others I have had that cost twice the price. I highly recommend. In addition, the company was most responsive when I contacted them with a question and followed up with me to be sure I was completely satisfied.
I can't say enough good about these ratchet pruning shears. I love to prune bushes and trees, and these pruning shears make the task very easy and enjoyable. I spent a half-day using them once they arrived. Because I have arthritis in my hands, I need a ratcheting pruner, and this is one slick, sharp tool that lets me get the job done without straining my hands. I would recommend these shears to anyone who needs a sharp, sturdy tool to do pruning.

My wife says the ratchet function is what really makes these useful. No matter what you are trimming/pruning, there is always that urge to cut something just a little bigger and these shears allow you to stretch that extra little bit over a normal (non-ratchet) model. The seller was proactive in contacting us to make sure we were happy with the purchase. That's a nice touch and something many companies don't make the effort to do.
