Masterfully sever branches, saplings, or your annoying neighbor's prized azalea bush with the Husqvarna 8-1/4-Inch By-Pass Technical Pruning Shears. The blade maintains a sharp edge even after serious snipping sessions, while the angled, beaklike design maximizes power transfer to easily gnaw through yard trouble up to seven-eighths of an inch. A nonslip coating helps keep your digits intact. [$43; husqvarna.com]
