I got for Christmas a pair of Gardena garden scissors and I had the first chance to use them the other day It was amazing how easy and pleasurable it was to cut 3 dozen stems with those instead of other tools I have used.

That got me thinking about other sharp objects (other than my knives) that I appreciate. I also love my Bessey folding utility knife with wood handle.

What other sharp things should I invest in?

I got into japanese steeled garden tools (pruners, saws) last season and really like how they cut so much cleaner and more effortlessly than the other stuff I have. Like knives, the blade steel ability to take and hold a better edge makes a world of difference -esp. with the more fragile stuff (flowers, ornamental maples, fruit trees, etc.).
