Wilkinson Sword releases new single-handed shear

by | Mar 22, 2017 | News, Products | 0 comments

With the weather gradually becoming more spring-like, thoughts are no doubt turning to the garden and how to spruce it up in readiness for the warmer months. Wilkinson Sword has developed a new single-handed topiary shear to ensure that this task is as easy and enjoyable as possible when it comes to keeping shrubs and hedges perfectly trimmed.

The perfect tool for gardeners looking to shape and control their bushes and hedges, these topiary shears (1111259W) are easy to use and enable the user to keep control all the way through the cutting process. The single-handed approach means that users can be very accurate when trimming, meaning that the desired topiary design can be achieved with ease ? move over Edward Scissorhands!

There are several design features that aid this accuracy of use, such as the strong, durable Carbon Steel 16.5cm blade with a precision ground face, and the scissor like action of one razor sharp blade passing over another that provides a crisp and clean cut. The blade is even naturally sprung to help with the cutting stroke.

For supreme comfort during use, the handle has been ergonomically designed with comfortable, non-slip grips, enabling the user to trim and shape with controllable, quick and repetitive cutting strokes. Another key feature is the easy to use central catch which is significantly larger than others on the market and so can easily be used with gloves or by people who are not quite as dextrous as some. Not only this, but they are also not as fiddly to open and shut, with the safety locking catch enabling safe transport and storage.

The topiary shears retail at ?14.99 and, as with all Wilkinson Sword garden tools, carry the reassuring Wilkinson Sword 10-year guarantee.

Available to buy from www.wilkinsonsword-tools.co.uk.
