Good deal, but these things SUCK! I exchange these everytime I go to use them. Out of the box, the blades don't line up! The blades only ever cut at the front and dull quickly. Not worth the frustration. BTW, made in China.

I think I can get at least 4 bucks worth out of these...

thank you. i thought i had every craftsman garden deal posted by butcherboy but i didn't have this straight blade pruner. i bought a few of the curved blade pruners from a previous post. i used SYW points to get it for free.

I have this & like it. I don't know if I would pay $13.99 for it.

Thanks OP! Can use a second one for my wife and with a few SYWR points & SYWM shipping it's almost free for me.

In 2 years of home ownership I have gone through 4 pruners and 2 loppers. What have I learned? You get what you pay for. In my case what made the bleeding stop was buying Fiskars products instead of Craftsman. Craftsman makes a fine shovel but if it has a hinge I normally just keep on walking in the garden tool world.
That being said this is a much higher quality pruner than you can normally buy for $4, just don't expect it to last more than a couple seasons. (Yes, I've owned one)

Really? You exchange them every time you go to use them, huh? Oh and you don't say -- they're made in China (gasp).
Sounds like hyperbole.
Anybody - I have 2 pairs of these (thx BB) and they work like a charm. No better or worse than 2 other handhend anvil pruners I have. Buy with confidence.
