Nyglass is a patented composite material designed to provide lightweight coupled with durability to provide a highly usable garden shear having smooth moving sharp cutting blades along with a comfortable holding handle. Nyglass, a Fiskars staple used to generate many of their products is a hardwearing nylon/fiberglass combination. As one side effect of arthritis; My hands do get tired when gardening tools are pretty heavy.
Blades presented by my Fiskars Softouch Swivel Grass Shears are a hefty 5 inches length of precision ground carbon steel, don't understand precisely the technicalities of that, however, the blades are sharp and cut, that is what I want. Weight of this Fiskar shear is less than a pound, good for me with my lessened strength in hands and wrists. I can clip grass for a longer period and experience less discomfort than when I am using another, heavier type cutter.
The loop style handle is designed to protect fingers, which it does, however, I choose these types handles for the reason that they are more comfortable to my hands which in addition to the arthritis are smaller than are those of many adults.
Manual swivel type shears are very good for the gardening trimming jobs I face in my too large yard filled with pervasive pasture grass along with other grasses, little of which is actually lawn type grasses which surround, invade and crowd my many planting pockets, beds and homes for Iris, Lilies, and other flowering plants.
I like the swivel head feature found when using my Fiskars Grass Shears; the swivel head permits me to trim grasses and unwanted vegetation both parallel with the edging border or for carrying out a perpendicular trim with equivalent ease. The blades can be rotated a full 180 which makes them dandy when trimming near large tree trunks, or along sidewalks.
When I can whack through the swathes of heavy, thick stemmed mounding pasture type grasses which continually crawl toward and into my flower beds, I know the Fiskar Shears in my hand are doing what I want them to do.
I have a number of Fiskars tools and find them to be usable, functional, well made and carry a limited Lifetime warranty. As a rule I buy Fiskars from our local brick and mortar big box stores having garden centers. To date I have not had reason to return any of my Fiskars tools for warranty replacement. Should that need arise I have no doubt that the tool will be replaced per the warranty.
Fiskars are available online from a variety of sites as well as from garden centers.
Grass shears having an arthritic easy hold are an exceptional find for those of us who enjoy gardening, and do have arthritis. I am very pleased that Fiskars has been recognized by the Arthritis Foundation® for their work to provide tools for those having arthritis, carpal tunnel and rheumatism. Happy to recommend Fiskars Softouch Swivel Grass Shears
