Product: Felco F-2 Classic Manuel Hand Pruner
Hand pruners my experience
I have worked with these tools over the years on many garden projects and to be honest with you these are great tools to have as a part of your garden accessories.
But be very careful because the blades on these tools are very sharp especially when new and can really cause injury if it comes in contact with body parts, hence was my experience when I was employed many years ago at a five-star resort.
I was working on a garden project and was trimming back some white fountain grass, but what I did not realise was how I was holding the grass, one of my fingers got caught in the blades mouth
and all I saw not to give you the creeps was nothing but red, and you guess right it was my blood. I had accidentally cut my finger open and had to be rushed to the nurse’s office for immediate medical attention. Man was that a day, would not want to have that awful experience again. So be very careful when working with these pruners.
In this review, we will be looking at Falcon f-2 manual classic pruner
In my opinion, this pruner is a beauty that is well constructed to give you all the comfort that you need while performing those garden projects. It gives you that quick clean cut
But a word of caution do not try to cut branches thicker than what the blade was met to cut because misuse in this way can damage blade to the point where it will not be of good use anymore.
The handle is constructed in such a way that it really accommodates your fingers in gripping and applying the right amount of pressure. This pruner is so comfortable
that it is easy on your fingers and wrist, giving you all the comfort that you need in handling that garden project, no sweat
Maintenance of pruner
Pruner can be kept well maintained by wiping off plant sap with a small amount of gas on a piece of clean cloth or you can use the rubbing alcohol which is even better because it not only cleans the blade but can sterilize it from
any disease that it may have come in contact while performing pruning procedures. Or if you prefer you can sterilize with bleach. Spraying WD40 on pruners blade is great to keep your pruner lubricated.
Also using a file to keep blades sharp is great because after performing so many pruning operations will cause the blade to become dull. These simple products will keep your pruner in good shape
