What are the Burgon and Ball RHS Left Handed Bypass secateurs like to use?

These reverse-design secateurs are for left-handed gardeners and work really well. They have a high-carbon steel blade, which feels strong and cuts well. The 25mm cutting diameter means they can easily tackle most pruning jobs, and have a large safety catch that engages smoothly and easily. Their ergonomic handles have bright orange plastic grips so there should be no need to go hunting through piles of prunings for these. They’re easy to sharpen and look after and should last a long time.

Are the Burgon and Ball RHS Left Handed Bypass secateurs good value for money?

With replacement parts available, such as blades and springs and a 10-year warranty these are excellent value for money.

Who are the Burgon and Ball RHS Left Handed Bypass secateurs most useful for?

Ideal for all left-handed gardeners with general pruning jobs around the garden.
