Identify my aged pruners!

Can anybody identify the manufacturer my old pruner, (and if they still exist) as it is well loved but in need of a spare part or two?

    Bit of a question there !
    Do you have any idea how old they are ?

    Judging by the colour of the handles, they look like Felco secateurs.

    They do look like Felco #2 but that's not the Felco logo on them so I suspect they are a 'clone' manufactured by someone else.  I have a similar looking pair which came from T&M as an offer of some kind, many years ago.  Mine have no logo stamped on them at all.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    You could always send Felco a photo and ask them what they think...

  • Thank you for your responses - they are certainly older than 20 years as I found them in our garden (very rusted) soon after we moved in, and cleaned them up and honed the blade. Since then they have outlasted a set of Wilkinson sword bought a mere 5 years ago! I will see if Felco lay claim to them, or if they dismiss them as an inferior copy. Happy pruning everyone.

    I bet a few unprintable words were said the day they disappeared....

    Let us know what Felco say.😊
