These are sharp .... They have an annoying twizzly handle and don't work if your left handed.

Easy to use Secateurs
This product is ideal for individuals with average or below hand strength. It is also a great tool for the stronger individual as well. It is a sturdy well constructed tool which makes difficult jobs much easier. With wider cuttings the user instead of using brut force to cut through just squeezes twice to slice all the way through creating a compounded effect with less manual force.

I've been using these to prune some old and thick stemmed roses and they are fabulous. It's made very quick work of what was taking ages with my old secateurs. I wish I'd bought these years ago.

You need big hands
These ratchet secateurs are good at cutting through branches, but the twisting handle takes some getting used to and does not seem to make it any easier to use. The handles are quite far apart and this makes it difficult for someone with smaller hands to use. I have quite big hands and found it more difficult to get a good squeeze on the tougher branches. Will not buy secateurs with a twisting handle again.
