if you want a good clipper, stick with a well known brand
These clippers are lousy. After using them 1 time, they will no longer lock. if you want a good clipper, stick with a well known brand. Very disappointed!

Blades did not align
The cutting blades did not align which made it necessary to use 2 hands to get the shears to close.
BTA-MALL was great about the return

Received dull pair, not "Extra Sharp" but seem to work nicely after sharpening.
These were dull right out of the package and didn't show any indication that they were even sharpened at the factory. I sharpened these myself with a diamond knife sharpener and now they work fine. I like the spongy handles. These are very comfortable to handle but they should have been sharpened by the manufacturer. Even the product title says "Extra Sharp". My experience was "VERY DULL". I would recommend these if you don't mind sharpening them yourself if you get a dull pair like I did.

Piece of junk
Looks very heavy duty but the steel is very soft could'nt even cut through 3/8 inch rose stem. Broke on first use.

Supposed to be stainless steel.
Stainless steel does not RUST.
These not only rust but the description says lifetime warranty.
BTA-MALL will not let me return.

The blade area on the clippers tend to bends when you try to cut a small branch on a bush. I would not recommend!

Great shears works well for lefties!
These pruning shears are excellent. First I'm a lefty and they work great. Nice precision cutting. Works great for left and right handed people, has a nice weight to it and is ergonomic.

The mechanism that keeps the shears closed is defectively deigned
The mechanism that keeps the shears closed is defectively deigned. It is a real irritant. How something so simple could have been designed so poorly is amazing.

Maybe they were made in China
I just got these yesterday and tried them out today. I was cutting back some maple branches the thickness of a #2 pencil for about ten minutes. In this time the handles were bent, the blade was chipped enought so that you could not close them fully. I have gotten some cheap crap before but this was by far the worst experience. They looked good coming out of the box but I guess you get what you pay for. Was hoping that since the retail price was around sixty dollars that I was getting a good product and a great deal. No dice. I would not buy these again.
