The Softgrip Micro-Tip Pruning Snip makes deadheading, trimming and shaping plants easy so easy, it's earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use Commendation. An Easy Action design automatically opens the blades after each cut to help make cutting easier. Stainless steel blades feature a precision-ground edge that stays sharp longer and cuts all the way to the tip for clean, healthy cuts on plants. The handle features Softgrip touch-points for a secure, comfortable grip. An easy-open lock and included blade cover protect the blades during storage.
