The Garden Shears from Gardenite are as described on the product description page. I like the size of these smaller pruners. These are perfect for deadheading and trimming up small gardening jobs. These are also great for snipping of my summer vegetables from the vines, so as not to tear the tender stalks. I like the sliding lock in the middle of the pruners. It is out of the way and conveniently located and colored too. The blades came pre-lubricated too. The handles on these are made of some type of hard rubber. They have just the right amount of spring in them to allow for a pretty wide cut. These are wonderful for my adult lady hands and perfect for the things I do in the garden and around my potted plants. I received these for free in exchange for my review.
