Good pruning scissors for nano tank?

I find I am constantly having to cut back leaves in my 2.5 gallon tanks because the plants overgrow the space. I have been using just a normal office scissors or kitchen shears but it would be nice to find something long handled, with just an inch or two of cutting blades on the end. Ideas?

Ebi Ken spring scissors look pretty nice and good for small spaces.

Check out Amazon or Ebay. Look for surgical grade stainless steel scissors to prevent any tissue damage from dull scissors.

I searched up http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=stainless+steel+surgical+grade+scissors#/ref=sr_pg_1?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Astainless+steel+scissors+surgical&keywords=stainless+steel+scissors+surgical&ie=UTF8&qid=1363043526 on Amazon and came up with these on the first few pages that might be what you're looking for?

There are cool too!
