What secateurs do you use

Just a quick question really, most of us I would imagine own a pair or even several pairs of secateurs, what’s your favourite pair and why ?

    Felco 2, just because they work so much better than anything else I've used

    I believe you can readily get replacement parts for such secateurs as well

    Yes, and I sent mine off to be serviced a couple of years ago - well worth the money.

    Felco 2 also. Mine are at least 10yrs old and with a 10 minute service once or twice a year they're good as new
    spares are available too
    There are several models of Felco available I'd suggest have a look at them and decide which would suit you best. Some fine the No2 a bit too heavy

    One of my personal pet hates, blunt secateurs, saying that my other half is very good at keeping all the necessary gardening tools sharpened😊

    I have a pair of Okatsune and really like them, sharp and hold an edge very light. I like the folding catch as I hang it off my trouser hammer loop (I wear my builder work trousers in the garden) rather than use a holster or pocket.

    @Wilderbeast I like the Okatsune and have also used Felco 8, at the mo using a pair of Monty’s favourites - Tobisho secateurs but they are similar to the Okatsune’s
