Bypass Pruner

Use bypass pruners on living stems ½ inch or less in diameter, as when cutting fresh flowers, pruning roses or raspberries, or snipping herbs from the garden. These cuts must be as clean as possible to maintain the plant's health, so keep the blade sharp.

Shown: Because bypass pruners get so much use, spring for a well-made tool like this one, with ergonomic handles and blades that move smoothly. About $52;
