I bought these titanium pruners in hope that I would buy a premium product that would last. I used my pruners for 3 hours off and on cutting sprouts and briars. I never cut anything thicker than half inch. The pruners are rated for up to an inch. At first, I noticed the pruners cut like butter, but after a while they were not so smooth. After I finished up. I was going to oil the blade, but I notice that the blade was nicked and was binding against the shear. I am not sure if it is due to poor machining where the blade meets the shear, but I am sure that the tempering must be off for the blade to be damaged so easily. It gets me because there is so much information on the package about titanium, hardened steel, precision ground even for heavy use, etc. I don't feel like the product lived up to the promise I was given, and considering the price it is disconcerting. I will be returning these pruners.

This is the way a tool should be made! It's strong, sharp, easy to handle and use. I used these to break down three old Yew bushes. They cut all but the thickest branches with no problem. This is exceptional when you consider that it was all dead wood, which is always much harder than live wood. They remained sharp through all of this, and the blades stayed aligned too. That's a lot to ask of any pruning shear. If they can take this type of abuse, and remain sharp enough to make a clean cut on a rose bush, they have my endorsement!

I am a big fan of Fiskars products. I have everything from the .88 cent trowel to a nice bypass lopper. This is great for little jobs around the yard and paired up with my telescoping lopper there is nothing I can't cut.
It didn't get a 5 from me because after a long season of use it is developing rust in various spots. I don't know if this is my fault, but I hope with some WD40 and some extra care I can clean it up. It still cuts great, I just want to keep it in good shape.

I purchased this pair because it had the least amount of plastic in the construction.
There is only one piece of plastic and it is the lock mechanism which is a little slide piece that locks the cutting blades in the closed position. If that piece was metal I would call them perfect.

The Fiskar's pruner is definitely a high quality product. However, a seemingly minor flaw in the design of a toggle limits its effectiveness. Unfortunately, because of this flawed design, the toggle frequently and inadvertently locks the blades together while you're working. It becomes increasingly more frustrating as you are continually forced to unlock the blades in order to proceed with the pruning.

I've had two of the Titanium bypass pruners and they both broke in the plastic part that rotates the handle as you squeeze. They had a lifetime warranty so I traded the first one in for another. When the second one broke in the same way, I traded it in for the professional model which is not made of plastic. So far the all steel professional Titanium bypass pruner has functioned as expected.
