Spring scissor, wave scissor, straight tweezers, and curved tweezers


Anybody can guide me through these tools? The difference and the use each specific tools designed for.

For instance, if I buy curved scissor should I get straight spring scissor? I just don't want to buy tools that is overlapping.

Well it might seem there is a scissor/tool for every occasion.

I loved my pair of Wave Scissors, they were my favorite all purpose. Foreground, midground and background plants easily. The longer the better, 12 inch Ebiken are great for the price.

I want to try a 12 inch spring curved scissor next though, and will pick one up in the future probably.

Pinsettes are a little more tricky, I would do a grip tip and a fine tip straight pair. This allows for small roots and delicate plants and more robust plants. (The longer the better I find 10-12inch)

So my basic starter kit would be:

Wave Scissor
Fine Tip Pinsette
Grip Tip Pinsette
