Felco F-2 Classic Manual Hand Pruner

The Felco F-2 Classic Manual Hand Pruner has a¬†comfortable, light, sturdy handle made of forged aluminum with a limited lifetime guarantee. The blade is made of high-quality hardened steel, which allows clean, precise cuts. The sap groove prevents the blade sticking when cutting “sappy” wood. It saves time and makes pruning easier by removing sap and debris after each cut. The Felco Classic Pruner is easily adjustable. Hand and wrist protection and optimization of the force exerted are provided by the angled head, the ideal shape of the handles, and the cushion-shock absorber / non-slip coating.These classic Felco pruners set the standard by which all others are judged. The choice of landscape professionals, nursery workers, and savvy gardeners around the globe; this exceptionally well-made tool features a design that’s been unchanged for more than 50 years. The anvil blade has a deep sap groove to prevent sticking. A Swiss, precision-made cutting blade with soft wire cutter is replaceable for maximum return on investment. An easily-adjusted bolt and nut allow users to customize blade alignment for more efficient operation. A rubber cushion with shock absorbers pads blades where they come together to reduce impact and strain on wrists. Strong, light, forged-aluminum alloy handles have a red, plastic coating that’s molded for comfort (and makes pruners easier to spot in the garden). A non-corroding spring mechanism is covered with a metal sheath to protect from moisture.

Ideal for trimming rose bushes and woody perennials, the Felco Original’s smooth, soft action, ergonomic comfort, and exceptional durability put it in a class of its own. It’s covered by a one-year warranty. However, with proper care, these pruners will last a lifetime. Mary Park

    The gold standard of pruners. Buy It! Ever since I got my first Felco pruner, I will not even consider buying any other brand. Not only do they work better than any other brand, they are simple to take apart and clean and replace worn parts. They are even relatively simple to sharpen, although it takes a slightly different touch than your pocket knife or chef’s knife.The bottom line is that they work really, really well for years, even without sharpening. Their scissors action is much better than the anvil style. This F-2 model is the most general purpose design and I use it on virtually everything.I will suggest that if, like me, you have relatively small hands, the smaller F-6 model is slightly more comfortable and easier to use for most work. I have both and use the F-6 for heavy duty end of the year pruning and the F-2 throughout the summer for average pruning jobs.

    There’s no substitute for quality I have a couple of rules about tools that I’ve developed for myself, I’ll share one here, don’t buy crap. Most expensive doesn’t equate best, but do your homework and buy good quality, it will cost you less in the long run.A few years ago I bought a pair of corona “professional” pruners after having borrowed my brother-in-laws felco #2′s. I used them for a couple of cuts and couldn’t stand them… so I took them back, which I really don’t like to do much but they just weren’t what they were represented to be by the salesman. Which is as good as Felco pruners. (Corona makes other good products I’m especially fond of their lopers.) Then I went to another store (before I grew so fond of amazon) and bought some of these. I LOVE THEM. I can’t say that enough so just in case you missed it, I LOVE THEM. For the last few years I’ve used them every year for a good number of trees, shrubs and bushes. They are still sharp, I haven’t even had to sharpen them. They cut like the day I bought them. They are so smooth and feel so nice in your hand compared to any of the others I’ve used. (When I was young and dumb I worked landscaping for a while, the boss had a set of these, but we got stuck using whatever else, now I know why!)If you want the best hand pruners that will last you at least twice as long, I think you’ve found the right pair.
