    Can someone recommend a pair of scissors?

    I'm looking for a pair of basic long curved scissors for pruning. I cant bring myself to pay $40+ for the Tropica (never mind $150 for the ADA). I see a bunch of no name ones on Amazon.ca for less than $10. Can anyone recommend?

    You could probably purchase any kind of smaller pruning shears or scissors or even look at some medical scissors


    this may help a bit

    I would say as long as they are sharp they should do the job you need them to do , the cheaper ones you may have to re-sharper sooner and always make sure you dry them off.

    I got some cheap ones form Amazon, this kit:

    They work very well, much better quality then I expected. They cut the plants nice and clean.
