These Felco pruners are amazing. I have the F-2s, as well, and I'm happy with both. The F-6 is a little nicer for smaller hands, but both have the same high quality construction and give the same stellar results.

I'd recommend sharpening your pruners when you get them, just to get the blade at its best. It helps get the

Great pruner, but compare this "large size" to the Felco F-6 for a smaller hand. The only reason that I did not give this pruner 5 stars is the incomplete description. The F-2 is the "large" size of this pruner, while the smaller size is the F-6 (sells for a few dollars less). I bought this for my wife. As a pruner,

It cuts as efficiently as a sharp bowsaw. Control is better, and it will leave a cut that looks as if it had been sanded flat. It's handier and safer to carry. It will reach in where a bowsaw won't.

For pruning, it will finish the job with a cut flush with the trunk. Mostly, I use it and loppers for the first stage of disposal

A LOT of saw in a small package. I Cut 4 25' downed trees into firewood in about 2 hours with this thing. Probably about 6" diameter at the base. We had the biggest campfire I've ever had backpacking. 2 of the guys I was with decided to buy this saw too after using it. Its ultra light and the chrome blade doesn't get stuck even when

It is great, except that when it is closed there is a gap and part of the blade is not covered. I use this for backpacking to cut firewood on the trail. With the exposed teeth, which are VERY sharp, it gets snagged on other stuff in my pack. Kind of a

If you are trying to find a hori hori knife that gives these combination of quality and service, I was in your shoes just last week. Having a difficult time deciding, I purchased this knife along with a similar knife costing $6.50 less from Bonsai Outlet, also through Amazon. This, Nisaku knife, is on the left in the pictures

I am very impressed with this tool, it is indispensable in the garden. I have used it to dig up weeds, dig holes in garden, split perennials and cut sod. This knife was very effective for all of those tasks. This knife is sharp, it cuts right through roots, tubers and most plant stems.

My only complaint with this tool is

LOVE these knives! Where I live, we have the mother of all weeds, especially Canadian thistle, which has roots to the other side of the world! These knives work great (bought 2, then someone lost one, then bought one more). It is a gardener's dream - just stab the earth close to the stem of the weed, going straight down (not at an

I had a 60' pin oak in my front yard die, so I had to have it taken down. I politely requested the tree guys to leave the wood since I have wood burning fireplace. They left it in rounds, and I needed to split it. The box arrived and it had some obvious heft. When I removed it from the box, the first thing I noticed was that my polo

I've been splitting wood wrong my whole life. Seriously. I should have bought this decades ago.

I heat my home with a wood stove. I'm also cheap and buy rounds. They're cheaper than split wood, and hey, I get a good workout splitting and stacking them.

For all my life I've used an axe, a wedge, and a 5lb short handle

When I was a little girl, my dad would occasionally go out, swing a maul, and split wood. Doing such a thing myself has always been in the category of “yeah right, I’m a girl.” And not only am I a girl — I’m a 45 year old, PowerPoint slide writing, office-working girl, who when I last attempted to buy one of those straps to

I was mad when I received it because I meant to order a longer handled one and did not realize my mistake. I decided to keep it and try it. I was mad when I began using it because I did not want to get that close to the 4 and 5 ft tall grass and brush and weeds I was clearing. I’m terrified of ticks. I drenched myself in repellent

I bought this 4 years ago and it's the best garden tool I've ever bought. I can't believe more stores don't sell these. It's completely amazing! Easy to use and it does so much more than weed. I cultivate my flowerbeds with it and plant with it and I've used it to break up hardened soil too. If you are a gardener and don't have one you'll

Fabulous tool! Fantastic tool! I cannot say enough about this item. It makes short work of weeding and getting to base of tough roots-like dandelions.
You do have to get on your knees though. I just hack away and feel very content. It is worth every penny! No gardener should be without one if you are doing your own weeding- this is

I use this on so many of my plants-indoors AND out. Outside in spring, this holds my heavy irises blooms off the ground when the buds are too heavy for the stems to hold up. After blooming, it holds all the leaves back so nearby plants can get some sun. It holds my heavy monstera leaves up and the aerial roots close to the moss pole. When

Update number 2: I paid $3.57 for this tape several times in 2018, and it's now $5.98!? I had given this stuff 5 stars, but this is way too big a price jump in a matter of just a few months!

These broke the FIRST use. On the fourth cut, the handle snapped from the blade. Wasn't even cutting something big. It was a tree branch that was maybe an inch in diameter if that. Purchased these because of good brand and reviews. Makes me wonder if it was a manufacturing defect. Where it snapped, the edge showed a dark spot...as if

Well today is my first time using these and my first impression is they are very sharp and I didn't have much of a problem cutting up a bunch of bruch. However, after about 45 minutes of heavy use I noticed they weren't cutting as well. I took a look at the blade and it already has good sized nicks and I can feel the edge is folding

Day 1 using these and they snapped like a cheap child's toy. Totally unacceptable and not what I believed this brand to be. I was trimming fruit tree branches no larger than 1" in diameter, did not expect the handle to break and mash my hands together.

I love these non stick coated fiskars. I work at a licensed marijuana producer and my reguar fiskars need to be cleaned every 10 minutes. These really are stick resistant, I used them all day today, about 7 hours of trimming and didnt even have to clean them once.

These are the best wet flower trimmers money can buy. Fine tip to get in deep, without destroying trichomes.

Durability to last years if used properly. I have more

I got these because they said non-stick, they're awful. The regular pruning scissors are much better and don't gum up at all and you can scrape them clean if they do.

I have bought two of these loppers over the past two years and found them to be excellent products. Several reviewers complain that the extension mechanism can easily get unlocked during use.

I have had these for about a year, one month more than. They have seen intermittent use and I was generally very happy with them.

I used these and had a constant problem with the handles unlocking with every chop.

Then I read a review here and learned that you MUST hold the tool with the "OPEN" arrows pointing toward each other. If you pick up the tool with its "backside" up, the handles will unlock constantly.

This is a really good purchase. I have found that all of the thirteen pieces are valuable when working with my succulents.

This set might look frivolous, like toy tools. But if you grow succulents—especially small ones in containers—this will make pruning, planting, and arranging so much easier, not to mention less hazardous to your fingers or your plants.
