I like the shorter razor sharp blades very much. It seems the handles are longer than I require for the 4 ficus trees I trim. There should be shorter blades, as well as handles for such shearing. I want to be closer to the tree. I had the perfect pair, but my house painter stole them, as well as other items out of my shed. I also trim Pyrocantha with hedge shears.
Yours are the very best I could find, so thank you very much.
