Felco secateurs - best size?
JudyN Posts: 119
I'm thinking of getting hubby a pair of Felco secateurs for his birthday, but I really want a pair we can both use and I've read that Felcos can open quite wide for small hands. His hand's are probably medium for a man, mine are very small. Recommendations for the best compromise size please, that we'll both find comfortable?
I'd be happy to consider other makes, but we won't be able to try before we buy, and the number of different models on Amazon is confusing enough as it is!
Felco 2 is the standard pair for general use. No 12 is a more compact version for small hands. Treat yourself to the smaller pair for a birthday or Xmas but get the standard ones for your OH? Unless he's left-handed in which case he'll need no 9.

I find Felco No 6 very comfy.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
