We are very pleased to say we have added a new manufacturer to our garden tools section. Berger is based in Wuppertal, Germany, and uses only high quality German-made steels finished to the highest standards to provide exceptionally solid and durable garden shears that cut like a hot knife through butter. One can hear the precision with which they are made: when the shears are opened and closed, the sound of the edges against each other is constant from the bases of the blades to the tips. At no place is there a gap big enough to fit even a hair through. The ergonomically formed grips help keep fatigue at bay. They are a real pleasure to use.

Burgon & Ball in Sheffield produces trimming shears in best carbon steel. If the shape of these shears seems familiar to you, it may be because you have seen classic sheep-shearing tools. You can use these for that task, too, if the occasion arises!

Berger Garden Shears for Grass "Rasant"

With these edging shears from Berger all parts are made of metal. The blades are chrome plated, to protect them from rust. Because both blades move, the shears cut briskly and comfortably. The friction of the blades moving against each other actually sharpens them as you work. The finely-adjusted mechanism feels very solid, with very little play, but is also extremely low-friction.

Total length 325 mm (12-3/4 inch)
Length of cut 110 mm (4-3/8 inch)
