    :toke: :woohoo1: :thumbsup: Great equipment makes all the difference in the world, especially when you're trimming entirely by hand! To that end, I've tried and used several types of scissors, trimmers and the like in combination for heavy cutting down to fine snipping of sugar leaves....pruners, surgical curved blades, Fiskars Microtips, iris scissors,... I am a picky SOB too when it comes to this! Switching up and cleaning endlessly is a PITA, so I wanted to find a style that could cover more than one base for this lengthy, tedious task-- :help: :haha:
    I looked at a couple Bonsai type blades, and the ergonomics were great, but the blades weren't quite right for the task,... then I saw these show up at my local horti'-supply store, and the guys raved about them! The kicker was the slick Fluorine coating, which feels much like teflon,... Better still, these blades were shaped just right for the job...
    -- narrow in width, pretty thin, nicely finished smooth edges; sharp as hell, really really-! Get careless with these and you will loose some meat- :eek1: As always, very high quality Japanese stainless steel,...:tang:
    -- the feel of the large handles is great; plenty of working room so hang-ups and finger-tangling is not an issue anymore when you maneuver them around or try to put them down... The texture of the handle material is excellent, just the right balance of grip vs slickness; it absorbs shock as well. The tuning is nice too, they open and close with little contact along the blades, but not so loose that stuff gets caught and crimped instead,...effortless open/close... And when you do close, the natural action of your hands pulls the blades together so the edges meet cleanly and plenty close...
    -- the Fluorine coating is bomb! :headbang: resins don't accumulate and gum things up nearly as fast, leaf bits tend to fall right off instead of sticking,... Clean up is worlds easier and faster, just a quick wipe with alcohol and a piece of paper towel and done! :coffee: ..anything else now to me feels barbaric- :rofl::paleo:--- and it's clear, they had cannabis in mind when they engineered these-- "..reduces resin and sap build-up".... :greencheck: *ding* :biggrin:
    -- the blades! Just right for med-heavy cutting down to fine nipping of tiny fans and trimming sugar leaves,.. I no longer needed the iris scissors (very narrow, thin short tips) for this level of clean-up... These blades are straight, but they do make curved, which I'm going go get because that makes sugar leaf trimming even better for ease and appearance,... I am amazed at how well these slip in between budlets to nip-out the fans at the stem, without beating up the trich's as much, compared to the Fiskars...

    :jointman: So, for the $23 they cost, this is hands down the best performing, best value that I've tried to date! These are tops in all the important categories I can think of, so IMO, these are The Benchmark, A++!

    :pass: Thanks Brim'! They come in curved blades too, which I'm going to try as well... I have some surgical type scissors with curved blades, but the wide blades collect too much resin and gum up fast... I like the curvature for some techniques and snipping fans at the base, straight for others,... I guess it all comes down to ones preferred MO! :thumbsup:
