You can hold it tightly until you hold it and secure it. Since I had small parts by hand, I took time or grabbing to grab it, but after purchasing, I used the same way of using scissors, there was a small slip stop groove at the tip, You can quickly take out one part and fix it. I am very saved. In addition, several pieces are purchased, and at home garden, it helps to select small buds and fruits of crops. Because it is stainless steel, you can use it for a lifetime. We plan to purchase several more.
