Felco Pruner Model F2
This is THE worldwide standard. The one that EVERYONE knows and loves. I use these pruners at home (along with the #910 leather holster) and I love them -- they are much better and more pleasant to use than the made-in-China pruners from one of the big-box home reno stores that I used to use.
Maximum cutting capacity: 1"/25mm. Best of large/normal hands (see F6 for a model specifically made for smaller hands). A great all-around pruner for Viticulture, Arboriculture, Horticulture, Parks and Gardens, and Nursery. For right hand use only. Length: 8.5"/215mm, weight: 240g/8.5oz. Comes with adjustment key.
Comes packed in a nice clear-top retail blister pack -- makes a GREAT gift!

--- Forged aluminium handles guaranteed for life* Lightweight, strong and sturdy thanks to special aluminium alloys and advanced precision forging methods perfectly mastered by FELCO. Precision adjustment system FELCO's micrometric adjustment system guarantees an optimal adjustment of the cutting head throughout the life of the tool, and delivers a clean and precise cut every time. Sap groove The sap groove prevents the blade sticking when cutting "sappy" wood. It saves time and makes pruning easier by removing sap and debris after each cut. Wire cutting notch The blades of most FELCO pruning shears feature a notch that allows for the cutting of small wires without damaging the cutting edge.
