KG VERDICT
A very good pair of shears. Quite light but at the same time have quite long handles so may well suit the taller gardener. The rubber grip handles are comfortable to hold, the action is relatively loose and the blades give a satisfyingly clean cut.

KG VERDICT
Designed for cutting the top of grass rather than the sides this is a very good tool. It cuts well and perfect for those irritating tufts of grass that appear either on the edge of lawns, around trees and bushes or other uprights. The locking mechanism is crips and secure and the blades will provide a clean and tidy cut.
