By  Enda

These shears are made by one of the leading gardening brands in the world, namely Spear & Jackson. If you have ever used any of their tools, then you will know that they are very well made. They are also tough, durable and built to last for years.

This certainly applies to these shears which are very sharp, and highly effective as both hedge and grass shears.

The steel blades are coated with a hardened carbon. That makes them not only tough, but will help protect them from rust. The upper blade is also coated with PTFE, and that helps with a nice smooth cut, and also stops the exposed part from rusting as well.

This is the best selling set of shears on Amazon UK, and in many other online stores. There are of course very good reasons for that. Buyers rate this product highly, with an overall satisfaction rate of a very high 94%.
