    I have a pair??? of Poundland hand shears that are ok but wearing out now.
    I'm looking for recommendations, I'm leaning towards Bahco GS-76 all metal at around £15. I don't know how to put up a link. :scratch:
    Any experiences welcome, thanks.

    @RobB I use an ancient pair like these Grass Shear - RHS Endorsed or Kerbl Hand Sheep Shears
    I've used them for over 50years and my father had got them 2nd hand. They need little or no sharpening, they get used for grass edges and cutting back any soft growth. I find them comfortable and easy to use.

    Thanks Nick, I'll get the hang of it one day. :smile:
    Hi Marley, I'll check them out in the garden centre. Thanks. I had a neighbour in north London by the name of Farley, no, can't be.
    Nigel, I love Burgon and Ball, my spade is nearly 40 years old but I also love my fingers.:smile: I will use it mainly for trimming grass around pots and the edge of the grass, can't call it a lawn so something quick and I see they do the other shears too. Thanks.

      It's the seventh icon in the row of them which appears when you start typing a reply, Rob. Then you simply copy the link, paste and click on "Insert". :)
