About our test

4 users assessed the cutting ability of the secateurs by repeatedly slicing through 9.5mm dowelling (the jaws of all the models could handle bigger diameters than this).

Secateurs with a cutting score of 7.0 or more cut the dowel reasonably well. Those with a score of less than 6.0 couldn’t cut the dowel.

The same 4 users also commented on how comfortable the secateurs were to use.
