What are Felco 8 Bypass secateurs like to use?

The secateurs feel chunky but light and the ergonomic handle protects the wrist and hand, making longer pruning jobs less tiring. The safety catch is easy to reach and locks well. The blade also has a handy wire cutting notch. The red non-slip handle makes them easy to see if caught up in clippings or compost

Are Felco 8 Bypass secateurs good value for money?

Felco are very definitely at the higher end of the price scale and were the second most expensive pair we tested. However, they are crafted from high-quality materials and the precision cut steel blades are robust and long lasting. All the parts are screw mounted and can be taken apart for maintenance and sharpening. Plus, Felco offer a lifetime guarantee and maintenance service – secateurs are mended or serviced and returned to you for a small charge.

Who are Felco 8 Bypass secateurs most useful for?

Ideal for a wide range of gardening jobs these secateurs are ideal for right handed gardeners with medium to large hands.
