Haus & Garten Pruning Shears

I recently got an offer to review the Haus & Garten Pruning Shears at a discount in exchange for an honest review. I was excited to try them. We are notorious for buying cheap shears just for them to either break or go so dull we can't use them within a few uses. Yes we should have learned our lessons, but instead we kept buying the cheap ones in hope that somehow it would get better.

These are a higher grade pruning shears. They retail for $38.90 on Amazon right now. When I first saw the price I think I had sticker shock. After thinking about it though, I think we have spent that much in the last couple years on pairs that were $5-$10. Now we do a lot of pruning. We are rural folks with land that needs care, trees that need trimmed back, and plants in our gardens that need care. So we may use shears a bit more than the average person, but still the costs add up.


So I got these, unsure of what to expect past the basics. I was surprised with the ease of cutting. I've been using cheap sheers so long that I guess I wasn't use to them just cutting right through. I have pretty bad arthritis in my writs which make pruning painful because of the amount of pressure I have to apply usually. With these though it cut with ease.

I did this short video of them in action. One handed because the camera was in my other hand. Most of these branches were smaller, but once I was done filming and had 2 hands I tried them out on some larger branches. They worked great. I didn't have any issues with them at all.
