Bypass secateurs are used for general garden cutting duties and should cut up to a 20mm thickness. Bypass secateurs usually work just like a pair of scissors as the two blades pass each other and make the cut. One of the blades in the bypass secateurs will be curved and the other concave or straight. There are some bypass secateurs that have only one blade fitted, the lower jaw being broad, but passing the upper jaw to make the cut.

Using a good quality sharp pair of bypass secateurs for all types of pruning jobs around the garden can save time and energy, trying to prune young trees and bushes without them can become very tiresome and could also damage the trees and plants if not cut off cleanly. Most of the secateurs are operated with one hand for ease of use and have a spring between the jaws that causes the blade to open up again after a cutting action has taken place.
There are certain types of bypass secateurs that are manufactured specifically for left handed users and other just for right handed users. Many of the secateurs have a rotating handle that reduces stress on the user’s hands and friction from repetitive use of the bypass secateurs.
