    I’m looking at bench shears, just the simple straight cutting type. I don’t really want to spend more than £100 but I’m not sure whether to buy new or used. There are plenty of quality old shears available within budget (Keetona, Edwards etc.) and any number of new ones but what should I go for? Are replacement blades etc. available for the old stuff or is that not a concern? Are there any decent new ones to keep an eye out for?

    Advice much appreciated!

    I have a Samson shear that I would part with, on a stand with spare blades:
