The Fiskars Micro-Tip pruners are great for precision trimming jobs on small plants, flowers, and even vegetable gardens where a larger pruner would be unwieldy. The non-slip handles, blade cover, and blade lock also keep the sharp parts away from your soft parts. Looking at the 1-1/2″ blade, I can also imagine a host of uses in the shop where larger snips or cutters would be too big or clumsy for intricate cutting or trimming work – feel free to share your ideas in comments!

Street pricing runs about $10 from your local Home Depot.

    I’ve had several pairs of these as backup to my (expensive)
    Japanese made bonsai scissors.

    They’re a great value for the price, and I can leave them out
    in the yard without a second thought.

    They stay quite sharp, do dull a bit over time (but not bad
    at all).

    I’d buy a pair again if, say, the raccoons in the yard
    absconded with the current pair…..

    I have 2 pairs. One pair I purchased from Homie’s and another pair I I found. It looks like over the years they changed the mechanism to close the snips. On the pair I purchased about 3 years ago there was a a rubber sleeve that was used to keep the sheers closed for storage. Not a good idea if you loose the cover. With the newer model they incorporated a latch for this purpose.

    I think they are great for deadheading herbaceous plants and maybe even some small diameter woody plants.

    Gave my mom a pair of those. Within a year, one of the blades snapped at the pivot.
