Designed for the professional manicuring of shrubs and topiaries , the ARS 19 ½-Inch Hedge Shears are razor sharp, super light, and built for continuous. They feature 7.75″ Marquench hardened steel blades that stay sharp longer with a chemical nickel finish that resists rust and sap build-up. Like all ARS hedge shears, the blades are extremely sharp and cut like a pair of scissors, leaving a clean, professional finish every time. The handles are made from ultra-lightweight drop-forged aircraft aluminum with ergonomic non-slip grips and double shock absorbers. Covered by a lifetime warranty.
