Garden shears are among the most frequently used tools in the garden, sales figures in Germany are over 2.5 million pieces / year. Garden shears are excellent fo pruning and putting into shape flowers and woody plants..
Garden shears are primarily distinguished into hand shears and pruning shears, there are also anvil shears and bypass shears in both categories. Bypass shears have a curved cutting edge that slides past the cutting blade when cutting. Anvil shears cut the wood by pressing the straight cut surface onto the so-called anvil - a flat surface made of plastic or soft metal. The bypass system allows for more precise cutting, but has the disadvantage that the blades can easily pinch hard, dry wood. This can not happen with anvil shears, because the anvil protrudes over the blade on both sides. The disadvantage, however, is that the wood is more strongly squeezed in this cutting system. Special types for garden shears are hedge clippers for eg beech trees, or pole for cutting at high heights. Many garden shears are also available with battery technology.
Other important criteria for selecting the appropriate gardening shears are aspects of ergonometrics regarding handling and grip, cutting performance, the effort needed to be put into maintenance as well as the availability of spare parts. Good gardnen shears make work easier both for the professional as well as for the hobby gardener and will turn your garden into a place to feel good in.
