Felco is a well known, high quality name and is considered the Cadillac of garden pruners. When you buy a set of Felco’s you can be assured that you are buying top quality tool from a company that stands behind their product.
Felco has many different sizes and styles of pruner but the F-2 is the most popular one and it fits most medium sized hands. If you have smaller than average hands or you are buying these for a child, then I recommend the F-6. Bypass pruners are most commonly used for general pruning in the garden.
The best part of owning a set of Felco pruners is that you can buy all of the replacement parts individually when they wear down or break. The springs, blades, gears and hardware are all replaceable. This makes these pruners more affordable in the long run and a better choice over cheaper pruners that you have to replace completely more frequently.
Each spring is nickel plated to increase the lifespan of the product. Nickel plating is used to enhance corrosion protection, improve hardness and reduce friction. This results in greater wear resistance and a tougher product.
