<span>I ordered the Craftsman Headge Shears during a Deal of the Day special last month. These are NOT Craftsman quality shears. They do not even match the item photo and do not have the few listed features! including the noted wavy edge blade or the telescoping handles! This item is Made in Taiwan. The current product does not include any of the better quality Craftsman features depicted in what must be a very old item photo. The red tubular steel handles are now only covered at the very ends in a thick but non-cushioning black polyethylene plastic rather than a more comfortable and shock absorbing neoprene type foam used on more expensive shears and yard tools. The hand tension adjustment at the pivot point is gone and replaced by a locknut! For some reason, a single strand of steel wire is protruding from the lock washer on mine. It sticks out just enough to cause a serious finger, hand, or forearm cut when taking it out of the clear vinyl blade cover. The plastic snap on this cover does not have a simple tab on it to easily pull it open! The two blades are seriously bowed and one can see quite a bit of daylight between them when viewed from the side. Since the two cutting edges are not flush, the cuts will not be smooth and even. Why are Sears executives on a path to ruin the excellent quality and long term reliability of Craftsman branded products??? We prefer them to be made in the USA and do not not mind paying a few dollars more if a real quality and long lasting product is delevered. Please Sears, return to your old Craftsman values for all of us dedicated Sears and Craftsman users.</span>
This item works very well. I had high expectations from a craftsman piece of equipment, and so far so good. It was able to cut through thick and thin branches, and feels good in my hands. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

We have a lot of hedges on our property and it was so easy to align all of them with these shears. They were easy to use and the handles didn't leave blisters on our hands.

Sears often has very good price toward those garden tools. I bought this for 9 dollars only. It has everything that I need. It is so easy to use without breaking a sweat. I will keep watching sears. They do often offer good price for the tools.

My wife wanted some hedge shears to replace the old monsters I use. I thought I'd give the Craftsman reputation a try. These have nice weight, look well constructed, the handles comes with good padding, and the color (red & black, not the black & green shown in the picture here) appeals. We'll see how they stand up to a couple of seasons, but with the lifetime warranty, you can't lose.
