"As a gardener I have always dreamed of creating a range of garden tools and accessories. I believe that tools should be functional and beautiful, and make each job a pleasure.
One of the problems I face as a women when gardening is that my hands are generally too small for standard tools. My designs specifically address this issue and I hope will add to the joy of gardening.
The better the tools, the easier the job."
Hedge Shear - Sophie Conran
This hedge shear is a high performance garden tool, but elegantly combines strength with understated designer style. Ideal for gardeners of smaller stature, the shear has long handles to give that bit of extra reach, while remaining comfortable to use.
The strong high-carbon steel of the blades of this garden shear has been drop forged, a manufacturing process which removes any voids and aligns the grain of the metal for a tool of outstanding strength and enduring sharpness. Shock-absorbing bumpers reduce jarring of hands and wrists, even during extended use.
The handles feature shaped grips for comfort and are crafted in FSC®-certified ash, a lightweight option. A beautiful brass plaque on one handle shaft carries the Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball maker’s mark for a distinctive touch. For peace of mind, this hedge shear carries a ten-year guarantee.
