Why PRO420 decided to enter the game

Rocks Paper Scissors

Let’s be honest, there are plenty of scissors in the marketplace today designed for gardeners. Multi-purpose snips for $10 are scattered in every shop in America. These scissors are mainly designed for infrequent use to prune garden flowers and shrubs. After a few snips, you break a sweat, go inside, slide the cheap pair of trimmer’s into a drawer, and they don’t see daylight for another 6 months.
Those avid gardeners who do actually rely on a quality pair of pruning shears are sorely disappointed with their purchases. Why? Because the scissors simply are not designed for everyday use. The spring falls out, or it rusts, the blades go dull, the handles get worn out, the list of complaints is endless. In fact, we have saved you a bit of time here and collected just a fraction of evidence from Amazon buyer’s feedback for one particular brand of garden scissors, and it is a sad read.

I ONLY USED Fiskar soft touch trimmers, pruners, loppers etc. because IMHO they HAD made the best. Most recently I had to replace two pairs of the Soft Touch Pruning Scissors that are approx 8+ years old and had ben sharpened professionally a few times over the years and were my favorite pair, so much so that over the next year or two of buying my first 2 I then purchased 12 more pairs for other gardeners in my family and for some friends. When I received the 2 new pairs I bought I was in shock, right away you can just feel how cheap they feel in comparison to the original model. The old model was made in the USA and Ill assume the new version is not since the imprint “Made in the USA” is no longer on the package/scissor blade. After the 2 full day of use the spring popped on the one pair and the same day while using the 2nd pair the plastic slide which locks the blades popped off as well!!

if you use these occasionally, fine – but we used in a small commercial greenhouse – they are *great* shears for light trimming…
HOWEVER BE FOREWARNED –
A) THE SPRING SUCKS – RUSTS IN A MATTER OF WEEKS IN A DAMP GREENHOUSE AND DROPS OFF
B) CUSTOMER SERVICE “LIMITED WARRANTY” IS A JOKE –
$10 for a couple months is waaaay outta line –
translation of “Limited Warranty” = Limited to the short lifespan of the lousy little super-fast rusting spring…

Bought these 2 months ago. Used them them twice; one of the scissors points came off on the 2nd use. Used for green plants only; not woody stems. A complete waste of $.

I bought these pruning snips just a year ago and the metal blade snapped. I guess Fiskars now uses cheap “pot” metal in their products

These only last a few times. The spring falls off then gets lost in the soil. Have bought so many that just fall apart

My wife has had the same pair for several years so I thought I would get one.Hers are made in USA this one is made some were else.Looks like they don’t even want to stamp were as they are probably outsourced to whoever will make them the cheapest and the cheapest they are. The locking mechanism broke of after about 10 cuts.Cheap plastic.I do love Amazon as they always so far have stood behind what they advertise or sell and a refund was provided.

The trimmer is sharp but the big down fall is that stupid orange clip. It constantly catches. and the blades would be nicer if they had a small curve to them

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked well until Blade Broke, so now Useless Junk, June 15, 2012

This review is from: Fiskars 9921 Softouch Micro-Tip Pruning Snip (Lawn & Patio)

This pruning snip worked well for a few weeks of light use until one of the blades completely broke off from the base. At first I thought the blade somehow came loose, but on closer inspection the actual blade had snapped off around its base.

I wasn’t using it for anything else but cutting some thin plant stems, so maybe the quality of the blade just wasn’t good or was a defective item.

1.0 out of 5 stars the lock/unlock slide pinches hand, August 27, 2011

This review is from: Fiskars 9921 Softouch Micro-Tip Pruning Snip (Lawn & Patio)

the lock/unlock slide, pinches hand between the slide lock and against the other handle (the lock slide stays attached to one side, sliding up and down, and it pinches skin against the other handle when using cutters whether the slide is in lock or unlock mode, it pinches in either position when cutting or pruning). they are not as sharp as other brands either. just not a commercial or ‘use on a regular basis’ type of product. the pinching will make you throw them in the garbage, the cutting is actually not too bad, but i only use these for emergency, when i can’t find my other pair.

This review is from: Fiskars 9921 Softouch Micro-Tip Pruning Snip (Lawn & Patio)

It is not sharp. I have a hard time clipping small branches. The worst part is that I have hurt myself, where my fingers have been caught in the closing area. On the other hand, it is hard to close. I would have preferred that it did not close, and just came in a protect cover. However, it has to close to fit in the protective cover. In hindsight, I should have purchased a heavier duty pruner.
