These precision topiary and hedge shears by Burgon and Ball of the UK are super lightweight – just 750g in all, which is a good deal lighter than most ehdge shears.
When you are doing a lot of trimming, lightweight tools are very important, but you also want them to be durable, so Burgon and Ball use forged aluminium for the handles and high carbon steel for the blades.
But they are also very well balanced, with long handles so you can choose where to hold them . . .short for quick, light clipping . .or long for covering larger areas and for useful extra reach on higher hedges or tall topiary.
The slim, pointed blades are a delight for precision cutting andnd they are super sharp too – with precision ground, high carbon steel blades for maximum edge retention.
If you want to only do fine angles and complex shapes then we recommend the single handed topiary shears from Burgon and Ball which come in two sizes. But for general precision clipping and larger topiary these two handed shears are the ultimate solution.
Precision topiary and hedge shears from Burgon & Ball are not cheap but their outstanding quality, excellent design finish make them a very good choice for all round hedge and topiary work.
