This morning, I bought a pair of these at the Dollarama on Glenridge in St Catharines (plaza with Cat Caboose). They had several more in stock about 10am in 3 (or more) handle patterns. I have already used these briefly and they worked fine They cut some dead branches easily that I thought might be a bit thick for them; however, they were a bit "sticky"(?) in their movement. I think they are worth $4 to me, and I might pick up another pair (although I am rarely near this particular store). However, I would NOT pay the $61.87 mentioned at Amazon. Lee Valley has Felco pruners for $46 which I suspect are much better than these (although I have never owned any). I have a pair of Fiskars pruners that I've had for a couple of years and they are much better.

FYI, I was in the Fonthill Dollarama (Highway 20 near Food Basics) after buying these, and I did not see any of the Waverly pruners. They did have some others (should have taken a pic).

That's hot.

$61.87 on Amazon.ca lol https://www.amazon.ca/Waverly-Pruning-S ... B00HTR1HC2
Not exactly a good comparison when everyone is a 3rd party seller. They can list any price they want and it's not surprising that sometimes they'll list toilet paper for $300. Sure doesn't make other toilet paper a bargain.

Yea not many are going to be ordering it at that price. $4 still great price though

Remember a lot of amazon 3rd party sellers actually buy these and then inflate the price to whatever they inflate it to. Often time it ends up even higher than bigger brand versions found at Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc. Basically amazon price is a pretty bad reference unless it’s actually sold by the manufacturer... otherwise it’s no different than eBay pricing.

I was in the Dollarama on Thorold Road in Welland (Food Basics plaza) about 3pm. They had these Waverly pruners in stock, along with some cheaper ones (still didn't take a pic).

LV also sells some no name pruners for $20 something... They're great, come with a spare blade and way better than Fiscars. Almost as good as Felco. I would only buy Felco for special needs - left hand, smaller/bigger size etc.

For those that might be interested, gobspeck is talking about product AB330 from Lee Valley. It's $29.50. We had one of these and it worked well. My wife used it quite a bit for making porch pots. I threw it out this spring because the blade was in bad shape. I totally forgot that there was a new blade in my Lee Valley bits&pieces box. Regardless, I preferred the Fiskars one that we own. Probably personal preference and what you are using it for.

I bought a pair because they're pink. Used them once on something thinner than a pencil, they were all right. A friend of mine told me the pair she bought couldn't cut anything while a second friend said hers broke when she tried to cut a branch the size of a finger. Luckily, my husband has some good shears that I can use. This pair will sit on the shelf to look pretty. :lol:

Have Felco. They’re expensive, but so nice to use. They are not $4, but they’ll outlast me, something previous pruners have not. Got them on sale many, many years ago. Need to sharpen the blade now after all these years of use; they’re getting a bit dull, but still cut ok.

I'll check pen centre and Glendale tomorrow when I'm in the area. Look good for just keeping spares around.

I bought a second pair of these Waverly pruners this afternoon. Just spent some time using them. The only problem I had was the lock doesn't work perfectly (some of the others in the store looked like the lock might NOT work at all). They cut nicely including some stuff that was thicker than I expected (definitely bigger than a pencil).
