Perfect for encouraging healthy growth on plants and flowers, the precision blades on Fiskars? Micro-Tip? Pruning Snips are ideal for shaping, repetitive trimming and intricate snips. Precise, Micro-Tip? blades cut all the way to the tip for clean, healthy cuts in tight spaces, while fully hardened, stainless steel blades with a precision-ground edge stay sharp - even through heavy use. Awarded the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of UseSM Commendation, these snips also feature an Easy Action(TM) spring that gently opens the blades after every cut to help reduce hand fatigue derived from repetitive cuts - especially helpful for gardeners with arthritis or limited hand strength. Additionally, comfortable handles feature Softgrip? touchpoints for enhanced comfort and control, while an easy-open lock and blade cover protects blades for safe transport and storage.
