The long, narrow blades of these garden snips make quick work of harvesting leaf lettuce, mesclun and herbs. Handy for deadheading flowers, too. The 2-1/2" long blades are made from high-carbon steel so they hold their edge for clean cuts. Handles are aluminum alloy with thermoplastic rubber for a comfortable, non-slip grip. Blades may be resharpened. Locking closure.
