I started using Fiskars brand scissors several years ago when I had carpel tunnel syndrome. As an avid gardener, my hands would ache from time to time after a lot of digging, pruning, etc., so I began purchasing Fiskars gardening tools to relieve the pain. One of my favorite Fiskars tools is the power-gear bypass lopper; it works like a charm. I simply love Fiskars’ ergonomic designs.

I love to use a Fiskars hand pruner. The cut is easy and clean. The best garden-type tools are made by Fiskars, period. They may cost a bit more than some others but are more than worth every cent. I wish Fiskars made cars!

I can’t rave enough about Fiskars products. I own every size scissors they make. Since I was a little girl, I’ve been using them for my knitting, crocheting and sewing projects.

The new power-gear lopper from Fiskars is absolutely fabulous. For those people that find themselves with decreasing strength with age or who would just like an easy time of cutting hard-to-reach branches, this is the product to get. It’s lightweight, and the “power gear” will give you extra cutting ease that traditional heavy loppers don’t offer.
