Finally, something I know something about! I am an avid gardener, and I love swiss army knives, but I am not feeling the love of this particular tool. These blades, no matter how sharp, are going to require downward force to cut and that will stress the plant. I use regular hand pruning sheers that have a 2 bladed cutting action (like scissors) so that I can remove the parts of the plant I dont want, and leave the rest unaffected by the trauma of the force of pushing down or up to make the cut. These would be ok for cutting a branch in the woods to roast your weeine on, but, any knife blade will do that, so I am not really seeing the need.
