What kind of sheers are those?
The hand sheers are Fiskars One secretary. The old model. I do not think they offer this in the USA anymore, but some "upgraded" version.

The ones I have are great. I have had mine for over 15 years and still work wonderful (and I have tried other sheers, Fiskars included, and was disappointed and so still go back to this model .. the perfect design).

I bought mine in Switzerland many years ago. But here is one source now locally to me in Hungary (and to see a photo):

Thanks for the info and yeah...looks like they aren't available in the U.S. as of now.
Great!!

But do note, they are green cutters. Not dead or old dry wood cutters. They have a plastic bearing which will wear out fast if you try to cut dry wood. For old, dry wood, use an anvil cutter, not a cross cutter.
