Wire Cutting Notch
The blades feature a notch that allows for the cutting of small wires without damaging the cutting edge.
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.
FELCO's micrometric adjustment system guarantees an optimal adjustment of the cutting head throughout the life of the tool. It ensures a clean and precise cut.
Shock Absorption System
The cushion and shock absorber soften the impact upon finishing cutting. The hand and wrist are also protected.

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.
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.
The test of a pruner is in its cut. These cut through fairly heavy branches quite easily and without spreading the blades and jamming, which is what ALL the cheaper pruners do. The second consideration is comfort. Felco deals with that by offering the same basic pruner in several models, including one for smaller hands. I find this model comfortable and I wear a medium men's glove. I do wear gloves when pruning, by the way. Anyone who does not, regardless of the pruner make or model, is inviting blisters!
These pruners will rust. There are as many rust-preventive products on the market as leaves on your trees, but what you really want for outdoor tools is a non-drying product. I use Fluid Film, which is lanolin-based. Rust Prevention: Fluid Film Spray 11.75 oz.
Take care of these and you will have them for a long time. Mine are on their 4th season and still cut almost like new with the original blades. They get wiped down, sprayed down, and put away at the end of each day's use.
I'm a Felco man myself because I believe that they make a quality product. Now, there are some who claim that their Felco pruner sticks in the closed position from sap after only a few cuts. This was true of mine until I learned how to properly adjust the tension on the nut. Some Felco models come from the factory with their nuts too tight, and therefore they require adjustment. This is neither difficult nor time-consuming. Most people should have the common sense to be able to perform this for themselves, although there are YouTube videos pertaining to the subject. Second, I have never experienced rusting, as some critics have claimed. Felco 980 Lubricant Spray is designed to protect against corrosion. My pruners live in a garage tool chest during the winter time, and this spray provides adequate protection from the cold Michigan winter weather. As of the date of this review, Amazon sells this spray under the name "Felco Lubricant Spray."
I have purchased several Felcos, including pruners #2, #6, #13, and lopper #22 (sold by Amazon under the name "Felco 30 in. Bypass Lopper"). The #2 pruner was my first Felco purchase. It is the standard equipment of all the arborists, tree crew workers and landscapers that have done work on my property. The large landscaping warehouse that services many landscapers in my area carries the #2 model prominently displayed for sale. So, I purchased one primarily to care for eighteen blue spruce trees planted along our properly line in 2008.Read more ›
