The unique gear design of these shears results in a quick cutting action with minimal leverage effort, making this model a favorite for ease of use without fatigue. Handles are strong, yet light weight with padded grips. The 9-inch, precision-crafted blades are hardened stainless steel, covered with a non-stick coating to resist corrosion and makes cutting and clean up a breeze. They are reputed as being “the only hedge shear to be awarded the Arthritis Foundation® Ease-of-Use Commendation in the United States, and Arthritis Friendly in Canada.”
