I remember a time before weed whackers — at least before my family had one — a time when men and women would crawl around the yard on their knees with a hand shear to trim the grass at the edge of the lawn. Whether it was a better time or just a simpler time may be up for debate, but if Fiskars’ long-handled swivel grass shears had been around, they would’ve spared us a lot of strained backs and sore knees.
The 36″ lightweight aluminum handle lets you trim 4-1/2″ at a time without stooping or kneeling. The hardened-steel, precision-ground blades hold sharp edges longer, and Fiskars coats them with a water-based rust preventative to resist corrosion. For trimming in those hard to reach areas, the blades swivel 360 degrees.
Fiskars’ long-handled swivel grass shears might not appeal to the family that now swears by the weed whacker — but if you’re nostalgic for days past or want to try a “greener” approach to yard work, the shears will run you $25 to $30.
