Felco F-2 Hand Pruner – Item of the Day — 11 Comments

    • No, the twin pack is for the sharpeners not the pruners.

      “These cut like a razor and are easy to sharpen, see video below on sharpening options. Personally I use a simple carbide sharpener like this. Note that I linked to the two pack because it is a dollar more than buying one, and well I can’t understand it but I sure as hell take advantage of it.”

  1. I FOR ONE AM ALWAYS UP FOR A LITTLE TIME TO KEEP ALL MY GEAR UP FOR THE NEXT TIME I WILL BE IN NEED OF IT TO DO THE JOB. THANK-YOU FOR A “TID-BIT

  2. I’ve owned a pair of these pruners for about three years now and I can say they are hands-down better than anything else I have tried. I am toying with the idea of getting a second pair as I am left-handed but I bought the right-handed pair and I often feel the need to switch hands as I am pruning.
    Silly thought I know – but for all you lefties out there it’s good to know when there are tools available specifically for us.

  3. I’m doing a master gardeners course and a nursery teacher that taught the pruning class mentioned these and said get real tools if you are serious. So, I just bought a pair last week. NOTE: another teacher said go to estate sales. She says the kids will often sell these for $2 along with other great tools because they don’t understand gardening.

  4. I bought a pair to use at work. They were great. Accidentally tossed them in the dumpster with the trailer of yard waste. Replaced them with another pair. Lost them again. Now I just use the cheapies. it hurts less this way.

  5. Don’t have this particular pruner, but this type of pruner is great for hunters. I keep a pair in my field dressing kit. It is the best thing in the world for cutting the pelvic bone. A few snips and you’re through, No more hacking at it with a hatchet, or slowly cutting it with a bone saw.

  6. Dropped the money on a pair last year (along with the corona leather belt holster which fits well) and I have formed an almost unhealthy attachment to them.  The best you can buy.  Really excellent.
