Picking a Pair of Pruners!

Hi! I'm in dire need of a new pair of pruners. In the past I've only used cheap ones from local supermarkets and the such like, but I'm spending such a great deal of time in the garden nowadays that I feel like a sizable investment in a quality pair of pruners would no go amiss.

A close friend of mine showed me this article:

The pruners they suggested seem like a good choice, and ones that I've seen other gardeners using in the past. If anyone has any advice or recommendations then my ears are yours friend!

    Well they are best in my opinion. Durable, clean cuts and easy on the hands. I garden for a living and they are in use every day, sometimes, especially at this time of year when a lot of pruning is done, they are in my hand constantly. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.

    They are my favourites too, I have 3 pairs, but the oldest are over 30 years old and cut as well as the newer ones.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
