Cons

  • Flipping Every Time

Comments about Flip and Snip:

The product is good for someone getting started with gardening. This is a waste of money. I have to flip with every single cut. The blades are sharp enough for cutting spent flowers.

    These are the pruning shears I have been looking for. They are so convenient! You can dead head flowers and cut stray branches without changing tools. I liked them so much, I gave them to my family and friends for Christmas.

        Comments about Flip and Snip:

        To keep the blades from getting sticky from plant juices I wash my flip and snip and dry it well to prevent rust. At the end of the season after washing I add a few drops of oil before I put it away for the winter.

          These are wonderful clippers! They are not intended for large branches, which were included on YOUR list. They are so useful and I have thoroughly enjoyed using them. Thank you for a great set of clippers!

                Comments about Flip and Snip:

                The product is well made considering the price. However, I basically stopped using it because the blades gets stuck together. I must constantly spray with lubricant in order to use. I get tired of having to carry around the lubricant so I end up not using the tool. So the concept is good but engineering fails. Too bad because I like tool itself if it worked.
