Felco, founded in Switzerland, is renowned for its bypass-style pruners. Model #2 is the standard pruner (secateur) of choice by professionals and gardeners alike around the world. Felco has manufactured versions of the same design for over 50 years, crafts other models and blade sizes, including swivel handle ergonomic and left-handed versions of this classic, all to suit any gardener’s needs. They are comfortable to handle, able to cut through any 1” branch with ease. Blades are easily removed for sharpening, and all parts including the spring mechanism are readily available, a testament to its popularity. The accompanying holster is highly recommended, with the clip-on hip cone holster being the most popular. It conjures up visions of the Wild West when you draw your weapon to a friendly duel in the garden and is a safe haven for your secateurs when not on use.
