<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>
The Craftsman hedge trimmers are heavy duty and well constructed. The hedge trimmers are ergonomic and very sharp. I am going to go back and purchase the Craftsman pruning shears.
These shears are the perfect size for trimming bushes. They are very sharp and with just a couple cuts you can get the entire bush cleaned up. The rubber handles keep the shears from coming out of your hands and actually you can cut without gloves on and hurting your hands.

I've had these for about 3 seaons and they have been a disappointment that I'm reminded of each time I use them. I carry my adjustable wrench with me because they are constantly getting too tight and I have to loosen them periodically. One of the handles has started to come off and I've tried to use payement to bang it back in (granted probably dangerous and not recommend) but since it has a rubber handle I can do it that much in fear of it damaging the rubber part of the handle. Even with these quirks, I've worked using them making the best of a bad situation. Because the handles are not flush at the same level to the metal portion the rubber safety stopper is barely strike each other to stop the closing motion. I gave the item 2 stars in the end because I'm able to trim my shrubs even with the setbacks.

For a Craftsman tool I thought the price was great and so I purchased. I can't get the cheap brand at the dollar store for this price so I was happy with that. I haven't had a chance to use them but they seem very durable and if it lives up to the name I will be happy.
