    I've used Corona and Fiskars and haven't had any problems with them. You can find them at Home Depot or Lowe's. Lots of garden centers will have them.

    What are you going to be using them on? I use Felco pruners. Found them the cheapest at AM leonard on-line. I have some fisker loppers and found them at Sam's Club, believe it or not. Whatever you buy, buy the heavier duty stuff that will last. The cheapo stuff will wear out and you will spend more replacing it instead of just spending a little more and getting the good stuff.

    I use Fiskars. But I do not buy tem at Home Depot or Lowes, as these tools at the stores like Home Depot tend to be "homeowner grade" not commercial grade. If you use a tool enough you can tell the difference. There are many catalogs and on-line sources to buy the tools from.

    I use a combination of Corona and Fiskars. I like the Corona 26" Anvil Loppers for heavy pruning. Fiskars Bypass Prunners are excellent for hand prunning. Home Depot, Lowes, and most Lawn and Garden dealers that sell commercial mowing equipment carry both brands.

    Felco for hand-pruners & loppers

    Fanno #1311 or Silky Zubat for pruning saw.

    That's my favorite combos.

    Buy what you can afford to replace, hand tools get lost or stolen very easy.
