So, wasn't really expecting much as this price but..... they really are first rate! Since buying them a week ago I've used them to cut back a 20' x 30' conifer hedge, a 30' run of mature ivy cladding a wall, hard prune back a huge overgrown rose bush (tree??) and then used them to help reduce all of the above into manageable pieces for bagging up! They have been worked really hard but are still as good as new. Only minor gripe would be the plastic collets between the handle sections come adrift, but slip them back into place and a wrap of gaffer tape around them soon fixes that. Summary: excellent value, sturdy construction, easy to use and highly recommended - nice one Screwfix! ;-)

I was given these is store as the one I wanted wasn't in stock. They do the job, nice and Sharpe but I don't think they will last cutting any thick stuff. There's a plastic knob in the middle which looks like it's meant to lock the blades but doesn't do anything!

Super Sharp Shears
Really sharp shears and very easy to use. Telescopic handles stay locked in place (i've used other shears where this hasn't happened). The price is also very competitive.

Had attempted to buy spear & Jackson shears but no stock and no more coming so settled for these.
Just not good quality, used them on a small hedging job that should have taken 10 minutes actually took 20!
The blades just would not cut through first time on many occasions meaning double work. The telescopic part works well and if the blades had been better quality WOULD HAVE BEEN a good buy.
Returned with the usual no-hassle screwfix refund.
