These are fantastic pruners. Comfortable to hold, sharp, and built like a truck. I love the fact that replacement parts are available for just about everything on the pruner. I hate it when a tool isn't built to last or replacement parts are almost as expensive as the tool. Felco pruners are the exact opposite, built to last with reasonably priced, available replacement parts. I'm so glad I spent the extra money to buy Felco pruners.
