[Canadian Tire] Fiskars Professional Bypass Pruner $9.99 (was "$24.99")

This is a great single hand pruner for branches upto ~1 inch in diameter. I have used it since last year and has been reliable and sharp.

On sale for $9.99 at Canadian Tire. Based on their funny-math invented original price of $24.99, it is "60%" off.

Amazon has the same model for $21.87 currently Amazon

These don't have the non slip handles, if that's something important for you

I woudlnt think so.... They did have some fiskar garden spades I think, but otherwise never seem them. I had some cheap pair from Dollarama and they just exploded after some use.

$10 price is a decent price for pruners. I have the orange handled Fiskar ones which I like.

I second that these are great quality hand pruners. I have a few types and this is by far my favourite.

This spring CT has had these on sale at this price every second week.

I agree with my Clarkson brethren. I had crappy Dollarama shears and the handles broke and fell off after cutting regular grass a few times.

The Fiskars I bought after have lasted me a few years now. Dollarama products are generally cheap for reason

Yes- true. Its a hard plastic but didn't seem to slip even when trying to get through thicker branches.
Don't buy it if you don't need it.

thanks. need to replace mine. Had a previous model of these shear... they were silver with a black rubber handle... suprisingly, the thinner blade side snapped off when I was trying to cut a 1/2 inch branch of thistle bush that was coming through the fence from the neighbours... wonder if leaving them out in the winter in a box made the metal brittle?

Be careful not to twist these or any other pruner. At the very least you will loosen the blades and they won't cut as well. At worst they will snap

buy the pruner from Lee Valley, it's around $25, but a much better tool.
If you can afford :) the fancy ones they sell, go for it.

Which one?
Fiskars are actually a reputable brand.
My boss has been landscaping for 20+ years and swears by them.

I have both (and more) and much prefer LV one. I comes with a spare blade, just don't lose it.
How does it compare with Felco ? And does it ever go on sale? Thanks
Fiskars quality is not very good.

Fiscars tools I used are passable, but not great (the axes are excellent, but I can't love them like Wetterlings or Granfors, LOL)
I haven't really used Felco. The best test I have for a tool if I have multiple versions, which one do I grab from the tool box?
In case of pruners it's the yellow one from LV :)

PS, these are 9.99 at CT every 3 weeks. I own 2 pairs and they are good value at that price. Worth the cost and would buy over and over again and I prefer to not baby my outdoor tools and cry later.
