The Felco Classic Pruner for Smaller Hands 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. Compact cutting power for smaller hands. Revolving handle prevents blisters and reduces hand fatigue.

I'd recommend sharpening your pruners when you get them, just to get the blade at its best. It helps get the cleanest cut possible, which of course is good for the health of your plants (less damage means less vulnerability to pests or disease).
What makes Felco so great is that you can take them apart to clean and sharpen them. Each pair of Felco pruners comes with a small thin tool (almost the same size and shape as a standard rectangular razor blade) that lets you remove the main bolt on the pruners. The pair I was shipped, however, arrived in an open package and, no surprise, that little tool was missing. So I sent them back and bought the pruners at my local store. Not the end of the world, but make sure you get the tool! And then don't accidentally throw it away...
Update: please see pictures. After using them
in my startup vegetable garden a handful of times. Why why?! I wanted to love them. Can’t return them too ugh
Update: Cleaned then as the manufacturer recommended. After using them 2 times this week, they look even worst.
I have average sized lady's hands. Typical caucasian size, I guess size small glove and a size 5 ring. These clippers are still almost too big to keep a grip on when you open the blades. Essentially, if you hold your hands as if to grip imaginary clippers, as wide as you can, if this gap measures less than 4", there is no way you're going to be able to open/close these clippers fully with gloves on. They barely fit my hands bare, and with gardening gloves, I have to adjust my grip so my middle, longer, finger is doing the closing action. My index finger is too short to wrap around the handle without sliding off. The handles are not especially grippy, they're smooth rubber. So, unless they are small enough for your fingers to really wrap around them solidly, you will have to adjust your grip awkwardly.
I was deciding between these and the F-2's. Everyone said these are for smaller hands and honestly they are. Some people stated these are still TOO large and I would have to disagree with that. I am an average man, 6'2" `180lbs. These are tiny in my hands.
They seem to fit my wife's hands fine and overall these are small. I am going to pick up the F-2's for me.
These are extremely sharp and cut/trim her rose bushes like it's butter. She enjoys using them. Once I get my F-2's I'll post comparison pictures in the review since I had a hard time deciding since I couldn't find pictures of them side by side.

Was bei mir ankam ist eine Frechheit. Eine original „China-Schrott-Duplikat“ Gartenschere (siehe Bild)
Habe den Schrott gleich zurück gesendet.
!!!ACHTUNG BEIM KAUF!!!
My mum needed a new pair of secateurs - she has a drawer full of cheap ones, I did my best to fix them up but they're just not good, they're semi-disposable really. So I bought another pair of Felcos and she's extremely pleased. I'll keep on top of the maintenance for her but putting them side by side with a knock off pair she has was laughable.
I don't really garden myself (well I do, but I don't love it!) but I like my tools and appreciate a well made precision tool when I see it. There's tools you buy for an odd job that you probably won't use again, so a cheaper one might do. Then there's tools that will be a mainstay of your longterm hobby or work and it's always worth buying the best you can, both economically and for the best results.
Secateurs definitely fall into that category as they'll potentially see decades of year-round usage. The fact that the Felcos can be easily maintained, stripped down, have their parts replaced and the business end is made from extremely high quality steel (they come with a precise cutting edge that will pass the "paper test") means that for less than £50 they're a sensible investment. I use a variety of cutting tools in my hobbies and the Felcos are as good as any of them.
So, don't have a drawer full of rusty blunted tools! It's a shame that people replace their secateurs when they stop cutting or functioning as they should, whether that's through lack of maintenance or just buying the cheapest ones they can. It's wasteful and a false economy. Grab a pair of Felcos, maintain them, and you'll have years of gardening joy (whatever that is!).
