Felco makes some of the best pruners, and quality tends to cost money – so while you can often buy cheaper, that doesn't mean you're buying better. So it's nice to see a pretty big discount on one of the firm's most popular pruners, the Felco F-2, that makes it more affordable. It's currently on sale at Amazon with a 20% discount that prunes its price, bringing it down from the usual $73.99 to just $58.99.

Felco's yard tools are built to last and this is no exception. The blades are made from hardened steel and the grips are aluminum alloy for lightness and strength. Rubber shock absorbers take the "aaaagh" out of gardening and the fact that all the parts are replaceable means these pruners will last a long time.

Felco F-2 Classic manual hand pruner: Key Features

There are cheaper pruners, we know. But how many of them are made with fully replaceable parts and come with a lifetime guarantee? Felco can do that because it knows that the combination of Swiss engineering and high quality materials makes for tough tools.

The  revolving handles here are aluminum alloy with a non-slip coating and rubber shock absorbers to reduce the impact on your hands and risk of injury, and the all-important 1" blade and accompanying anvil blade are made from hardened steel. The blade has a sap groove, and there's also an integrated wire cutting notch to make short work of cutting garden wire. 

This particular model is designed for light applications and right-handed users with medium-to-large hands; there are other models in the same range for more serious pruning and for smaller hands too. But the F-2 is the go-to model for everyday pruning and could well be the only hand pruner you'll need. Don't just take our word for it: the F-2 is currently sitting on Amazon with a review score of 4.8 out of 5 based on over 12,000 customer reviews.
