Arthur & Strange Opinion
I have been using Secateurs with rotating handles all of my working life and I wouldn’t be without them for the greater comfort, less effort required and less strain on both my hands & wrists. You fingers are allowed to make a far more natural movement as the handle twists with your fingers rather than them having to slide over a fixed handle. Yes it does feel strange to start with but it soon becomes second nature and now when I pick up a fixed handle pair it feels really odd.
