Lol knife porn. Ain't that the truth. I haven't put anything up because it is kinda the same so I put the pruners, pirate sword and convex pics in there. These corona pruners come apart and the blade pops out. They came out really sharp. When I finally get around to fixing my computer ill add some more pics that aren't knives. There's alot you can do on the w

No I haven't I shall google it I suppose this is where American English & English English differ a bit since shears to me is a much more of general word hence pruning shear - hair shears etc and necessitates two words rather than one I think most people in England if they prune use the word secateurs rather than shears although the noun looks as if it has French roots I struggled to find the spelling for them I admit not been the best speller although mention of that in the OED1
I bet branches move away from you armed with those although on a more serious note I expect from a tewchnical point of you there is less trauma caused to whatever you prune with those .
Oxford ~English Dictionary referes to both terms

secateurs, n. pl.

(sɛkəˈtɜːz, ˈsɛkətɜːz, formerly ‖sekatœrz)

Also sécateurs.

[ad. F. sécateur, as if ad. L. *secātor (bad form for sector), agent-n. f. secāre to cut.]

A kind of pruning shears with crossed blades. rare in sing.

   1881 Encycl. Brit. XII. 234/1 For pruning purposes a variety of instruments have been invented, under the names of sécateurs, pruning-shears, pruning-scissors, &c.    1901 Gardener 12 Jan. 1052/2 In certain positions it is difficult to sever a shoot with the knife without steadying it with the other hand; the sécateurs steady and cut at the same time.    1909 Daily Chron. 13 Mar. 7/6 All dead stems should be removed with a sharp knife or secateur.    1924 H. H. Thomas Compl. Amateur Gardener vii. 67 The pruning outfit should consist of‥a hone or sharpening stone,‥and sécateurs.    1937 Carter's Blue Bk. Gardening 1937 365 (Advt.), The amazing manner in which this Secateur quickly and cleanly cuts off the thickest of branches, very soon becomes a fascination to the user.    1967 E. Mavor Redoubt x. 172 She dressed her enormous bulk in‥a baize gardening apron with capacious pockets for her bass and secateurs.    1968 R. H. W. Brown Gardening Complete ii. 27 The tools which the gardener must have for a start are two spades, a fork, a rake, three hoes, a trowel, a dibber, a pair of secateurs, [etc.].    1977 P. Thrower Every Day Gardening i. 16/1 (caption) If the garden includes numerous trees, shrubs and fruit trees a pair of long-handled secateurs is especially useful.

There is Subway Dunkin Doughnuts & a few others that is if you are referring to Mallorca . As to English English I have know idea what they are using now most of the young in England are using Patwa so language is going more Orwellian (newspeak 1984).
Please don't hesitate to write whatever you like I do not take it the wrong way .
I still think those secateurs are frightening I can imagine a scene in a film where some one lops off fingers they would work well for that.
How do those edges hold up to pruning?
I just googled the book Epistoloary Sesquipedalian Lexiphanicism from the Occident looked at a few quotes i did not understand hardly any of the quotes sort of thing to read on an iPad at least one can define each word still it would be hard for me to follow having to find definitions for every other word . It has intrigued me I shall have to have another look for the moment it looks like gobbledegook to me so I shall have to see if it is or not . LOL
