The long snip sheers are a long, curved blade snip that is great for dead-heading, trimming inside and out and a wide range of applications. The curved, long-nose design is great for reaching inside the plant for fine detail cutting and the curved blade lets you get right up to the branch for a close cut. The steel blades are fully heat-treated for strength. The spring, blades and handles are coated to prevent rust. The leather strap lock is unobtrusive when the tool is in use.
