I have a pair of ARS HS-K1000 that are awesome. The build quality , ergonomics and weight are perfect. The blades cut like lightsabers and hold a good edge. These leave an immaculate finished product.
I watched some YouTube bids of some Japanese gardeners using hand shears to shape some hedges and trees. Watching how they use the shears and their technique helped with my style.
The ARS shears are worth the $100 if you plan on using manual clippers. They leave a great finish.
The Japanese make nice shears also and they can be found on web.
Hope this helps.
