Description

What are the Kent & Stowe Lightweight Precision Hedge Shears?

The Kent & Stowe lightweight precision hedge shears are a premium cutting tool, perfect for trimming and shaping hedges, as well as larger topiary. The long, ergonomic design features premium ground-coated carbon steel blades that won’t rust and give a smooth cutting action. Narrow pointed tips of these hedge scissors allow you add fine definition. Lightweight aluminium handles with rubber shock absorbers provide you with smooth working and soft closing. Non-slip grips add comfort for prolonged use.


These lightweight shears require minimal effort and are easy to quickly grab to smarten up and define your garden. These hedge shears come with a 5-year guarantee.


How to Best Use Hedge Shears?

Use these shears for cutting and shaping soft, non-woody stems (up to 6 mm diameter) and leaves of hedges and shrubs. To keep the blades in good condition wipe with an oiled cloth after each use and sharpen when necessary.


Precision hedge shears are a must have tool for shaping or trimming soft, non-woody stems and leaves to keep your shrubs and hedges looking their very best. This professional quality hand tool is great for getting intimately close for creating those super-sharp lines, defined flat hedge-tops and topiary sculpting that will make you the envy of your neighbours.


Shears are also useful for clearing overgrown perennials to expose slower growing vegetation.


However, these shears are not suitable for thicker, woody branches. For this sort of work, you’re best using a Kent & Stowe folding saw, Kent & Stowe bypass secateurs or Kent & Stowe loppers.


When Should I Sharpen My Shears?

In general, sharp blades cut through vegetation much faster and leave cleaner cuts. Clean cuts heal faster with less chance of disease. You'll need to sharpen your shears when the blades dull and trimming becomes difficult. A sharpening stone can help you keep your blades sharp. Always refer to the user instructions for the type of sharpening stone you're using.


Garden tip:

  • Before using the sharpening stone, prepare it with a few drops of paraffin oil.
  • Carefully clean the blades to reveal the condition of the blades.
  • Secure the shears in a vice and push the sharpening stone forward across the blade on a consistent angle, moving sideways with light downward pressure.
  • Try to maintain the same sharpening angle along the blade.
  • It is important to sharpen the outside, angled side of the blade only.
