Does anyone use these? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...akeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en Seems that cuts on the hands could be minimized a good bit with them. This year I pruned so many roses that even when my hands were at the cleanest, there was still visible black prick marks on all areas of my palms and fingers for at least a month. I don't believe in gloves either...if I ever do wear gloves its the finger-less kind. ITs a pretty good price...I might pick up a few pairs if they actually work. January-March is pretty much all hands on pruning for us. We do a lot of renewal and a ton of roses!
