I need to buy a whole bunch of garden tools soon and I really liked the ones at Home Depot by Friskas because they are so slight compared to everything else they sell.

Does anyone know if its a good brand and if they stay sharp?

Thanks

Do you mean Fiskars? If so they are an excellent brand of gardening tools.

Oops! yes I meant Fiskars.

Too many years of buying Friskies cat food I guess

LOL No worries. I haven't been able to get them to do any work since I brought them home

I love them, too.

Fiskars makes excellent sewing scissors, as well. (not that you care about that)

In the sewing scissor category they have these wonderful pull through sharpeners for when you want to sharpen them. Did you notice if they offered a sharpener for their garden variety tools?

Actually, thats how I first heard of Fiskars too! They were the "good" scissors that I wasn't allowed to use to cut paper!

I didn't see anything like the sharpener for the tools unfortunately.

I'm glad to hear their garden tools are also good quality. Now I just have to decide whether to buy an electric or manual hedge trimmer...

I've been using Fiskars brand tools for both sewing and gardening and like them in both applications. No complaints yet.
