My favorite is a pair of smallish (6" or so overall length) surgical 
scissors with the extra finger brace so you can hold them easily and 
control where they go. They cut cleanly and can be easily controller while 
pruning it awkward places. You can get them from lots of laboratory supply 
houses (wards, carolina biological supply, etc.), as well as from medical 
supply places. Doctor's offices might be possible sources too -- I know 
some doctors will throw out any that don't line up *perfectly*, and their 
"low-grade" is probably still better than necessary for plant pruning.
