We typically suggest using single edge razor blades when cutting into plant tissue to avoid transfer of virus or disease from one plant to another. Even so we recognize that many growers prefer to use traditional cutting tools when trimming their plants.
These cutting shears are not high quality tools, but that's what makes them economical and affordable for most growers. These shears are perfect for light duty use and come in two styles. They are comfortable in the hand when in use, and have a lock to keep them closed when in storage.
