Excellent pruners, lightning fast shipping!

Wonderful! Left another review, but these are the best pruners I have ever used.

Finally found them, definitely not the fake china ones.

Was issued as arborist, they are great. Did not survive its accidental trip through the wood chipper however.

I’ve been pruning many species of trees, shrubs, and herbs for a few years, and these Okatsune pruners are by far the best I’ve used. They hold an edge much longer than other pruners before I need to sharpen them, and they are very comfortable to use for long periods of time. These pruners even cut grasses like a pair of scissors. All the other pruners I’ve used bend and fold over delicate plants like grasses instead of cutting them. I can’t say anything about the long term durability of these yet, but I can tell just from a few weeks of use that they will last years. I wish I had known about these a long time ago.

This was a gift for a family member and fellow gardener. I have the same pruner and I LOVE IT. It feels like I am cutting a peach whenever I use it. I will continue to purchase more as the holiday season approaches and I want to give a special gift to my family and friend gardeners.
