Italian Stainless Steel Garden Shears FAQs
Pruning shears (also known as hedge pruning shears, hand shears, garden shears, secateurs, and loppers) are a helpful gardening tool used to prune or cut back plants and shrubs, as well as to trim smaller branches from trees. Shears can be used to cut flowers and fruits from plants as well.
The two most common pruning shears are bypass shears and anvil shears, which have short handles and a set of blades resembling giant scissors. Bypass shears are made up of two blades that cut in the same way that scissors do. Anvil shears have one blade that shuts onto an opposing flat surface, similar to a knife on a cutting board. A spring between the handles of some pruning shears drives the blades back open after each cut.
The method for cleaning and sharpening a pair of hand pruners varies slightly based on the tool’s design. Some pruners are designed to be dismantled so that the separate parts can be cleaned and sharpened, while others are one-piece instruments that must be sharpened as is. It’s a little awkward, but it’s not impossible.
First, you will need to gather your equipment. Set up a workspace that will not get damaged and grab a small scrub brush, metal file or whetstone, screwdriver, small wrench, steel wool, medium grit sandpaper, cleaning cloths, cleaning solvent, and lubricating spray. Second, disassemble the parts of the shears by removing the screws, both sides of the blade, and the spring.
Next, inspect the pieces for damage, rust, and wear. Now scrub off the dirt using soap and water along with a stiff brush or even a toothbrush. Rinse when done and dry with a clean, dry cloth. Use the steel wool or sandpaper to remove resistant residue focusing on the blade. You may need to use the cleaning solvent or oil to remove caked-on dirt. Reassemble and lubricate to finish.
If possible, sharpen your shears immediately after the cleaning process for ease. To begin, locate the cutting blade’s beveled or angled edge. Anvil pruners have a single blade that falls on a flat plate and is beveled on both sides, similar to a knife; they’ll need to be sharpened on both sides. Bypass shears only have one beveled blade.
To sharpen, set your file or whetstone on the beveled side of the blade, practically parallel to it. File along the curved edge of the blade in one direction with pressure on the outside edge of the blade. Lift and repeat as needed.
Stainless steel blades are popular due to their corrosion and rust resistance. However, they are prone to dullness and can become misshapen when used on branches too large; stick to using them for gardening and small branches. Other materials tend to rust faster and require more sharpening.
Due Cigni offers a variety of gardening shears in different styles using high-quality material from Italy. Not only will the premium stainless steel last longer than other materials, but the handles include an ergonomic grip for safety. Find options in multiple price ranges to suit your needs and budget.
