Pruning shears: features and functionality 

Pruning shears are an indispensable tool in the world of gardening because their function is to prune the branches of olive plants, cherry trees, vineyards, etc. Pruning is essential to ensure that plants grow healthy and lush. Anyone who has simple plants on the balcony knows how necessary pruning is. This guide will show you the different types of pruning shears in the market, from a real distinction from use to a differentiation based on the kind of supply. 

Pruning shears

Pruning shears, also known as manual garden shears, use the manual force of man to be able to function correctly. There are different types, and if we were to catalog them by macro sections, they are as follows:

  • Double blade scissors: from the word itself, you can easily guess that both blades are well sharpened, and when you go to prune a branch, you will have a virtually perfect cut.
  • Scissors with a sharp blade and a striking: the striking blade "cushions" the sharp blade and almost acts as a base for it; it is ideal for pruning green and small branches because this system generates a clean and clear cut, but not only... Even pruning roses will be a success because usually, its branches are small and thin. They are not suitable for hedges with thick branches. 

Type of Power Supply

Battery pruning shears 

Battery-powered pruning shears will be a lifesaver for small jobs in the home on not too large areas. However, since they do not use human strength to work, you can also use them to prune those wonderful fields without any impediments and with freedom of movement that even the most difficult points will finally be reachable! Unlike manual pruning shears, battery-powered pruning shears do their work by themselves: just press the button on the handle, and you're done...A feature of fundamental importance, however, is the battery life: before you buy this type of shears, inform yourself about the battery life and, if you are even more precise, about the number of cuts that can be made with a single charge.

Electric pruning shears

Electric pruning shears are the best option for a more experienced gardener who needs more energy and prefers not to be limited by frequent load cycles. Assuming that you have to do a bit more delicate work, it is essential that you pay attention to some tricks before diving into pruning operations. It would be advisable to free the area of any object or obstacle that could get caught with the cable. Also, make sure that the plug is inserted correctly in the socket to prevent the operation of the scissors from stopping suddenly. Finally, do a little test on a hidden branch and check that the result is what you hoped: if not, you can try again until you become more familiar. 

For more specific use

Professional pruning shears

Professional pruning shears, given their ultimate purpose, must be used in compliance with the strictest standards in terms of materials and quality. First think about focusing on what you will have to prune, because, for example, between a simple plant and a tree, there is a huge difference. In the case of professional use, the double-edged scissors, being both very sharp, could be a more than valid solution. But pay attention to the retailer to whom you turn to because the double-edged sword of this type of shears lies precisely in the blades. They are sharp, but if they are of poor quality, they will wear off fast. Making the right choice, you'll get supercuts and free of imperfections!

Telescopic pruning shears

Like professional shears, telescopic pruning shears are suitable for more sustained purposes than the simple finishing of common plants. Equipped with a telescopic rod, which can be lengthened to suit your needs, this particular shear is useful for those who need to prune a very tall tree or hedge and do not wish to climb a ladder, risking serious injuries. Even for those who suffer from vertigo; It seems trivial, but for those who suffer from it, is not. For this reason alone, telescopic pruning shears appreciated by all gardening enthusiasts, but also their comfort and functionality do not take second place. 

Best pruning shears 

The best pruning shears should be equipped with strong, sharp, and durable blades. Meaning that they should be able to withstand external agents such as rust (stainless steel is excellent in this case). The handle is of fundamental importance; better in non-slip rubber rather than plastic, since in addition to being safer and more suitable material for this type of instrument.It also provides a pleasant feeling to the touch. It is worth choosing shears with an ergonomic handle because this will allow you to keep your wrist in a natural position, reducing tension on your hands and arms. With an ergonomic handle, you won't suffer problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Useful tips for buying

How to sharpen pruning shears

Even the best scissors undergo the effect of time after several uses, but with little attention to maintenance, you can avoid this problem in a few minutes by sharpening the blades. To do it, you will need the so-called cote or a small sharpening stone. Different types are depending on the material with which they are made, but in the case of pruning shears, the diamond-coated cotes are excellent. They are particularly resistant and therefore, consequently suitable for sharpening metallic materials. The shape of the stone is also essential since an oval cote can better touch every point of the blade.
Furthermore, proper blade maintenance also brings advantages to the gears, because these will be used without overloading. If you can't find the cote or for some other reason you don't want to use it, you can always opt for the grinding machine. A real machine suitable for a more professional sharpening. The grinder machine has a grinding wheel with a diameter between 10 cm and 25 cm and operated with an electric motor. The speed of the revolutions depends on the type of machine and is usually slower for wet models and much faster for dry models.
