The Non-stick Softgrip Micro-Tip Pruning Snip makes deadheading, trimming and shaping plants easy -- so easy, it's earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of UseSM Commendation. An Easy Action design automatically opens the blades after each cut to help make cutting easier. Stainless steel blades feature a precision-ground edge that stays sharp longer and cuts all the way to the tip for clean, healthy cuts on plants. In addition, blades are enhanced with a special non-stick coating to help reduce jamming and resin buildup when cutting sticky materials. The handle features Softgrip touchpoints for a secure, comfortable grip.
